By Jim Donovan:  The weather isn’t the only thing heating up this summer. Local financial literacy organization Clarifi is unveiling its FREE FinanciallyHers Savvy Summer Series.  Running July through August, six financial education workshops are being held, with topics including investing, starting a business and networking through social media.

“Our goal for these workshops is to give women the tools they need to be financially successful,” says Markita Morris-Louis, Vice President of Community Affairs for Clarifi. “While the summer is a time to rest and relax, it’s also a great time to learn something new to give yourself a more competitive edge.”

All workshops in the FinanciallyHers Savvy Summer Series will be held in Center City locations in a “lunch and learn” style from 12pm – 1pm.  To register for a workshop, visit clarifi.org/summer.
