Finance discussion series launched for veterinary women
The first session will take place on 30 July.
The sessions will feature advice from financial professionals.

A new series of free online discussions has been launched to help women in the veterinary sector take control of their finances.

Created by Veterinary Woman and VetYou, each session of the Facing Up To Finances series will feature a financial professional, a guest sharing their lived experience, and a member of the Veterinary Women team. The discussions will be hosted by a member of VetYou.

There will be live Q&As, with those attending able to submit questions beforehand or ask them live, including anonymously.

The discussions will take place quarterly, with the first session being held at 7.30pm on Tuesday, 30 July. Titled ‘Breaking Money Taboos: Master Your Mindset and Budget Like a Pro’, it will feature financial professional Ruth Downs of the Platt Partnership and will look at the first steps to budgeting and creating a positive money mindset.

Further sessions are planned for October 2024, and January and May 2025. Topics covered will include preparing for the unexpected, planning for a major life change, and financial strategies for wellness and insurance.

Ebony Escalona, director of VetYou, said: “Our aims are to enable vet women to confront and take proactive steps and accountability in financial management.

“The Facing Up To Finances support series will help foster a sense of belonging in a community that understands the unique financial needs that women in the vet professions have, and reduce feelings of isolation and any self-stigma related to finances.”

Jenny Langridge, editor of Veterinary Woman, added: “Readers of Veterinary Woman ranked ‘finances’ as the top subject they needed to know more about to make the most of future opportunities.

“It’s vital that women in the veterinary professions are able to access trusted resources such as the Facing Up To Finances discussions to help achieve their financial goals.”
