Congresswoman Donna Edwards (D), U.S. Rep for Maryland’s 4th congressional district.

Maryland Congresswoman Donna Edwards will take part in an AARP forum focused on improving income security for retiring women.  The event will take place on Monday, Sept. 30th in Washington DC, from noon to 3 p.m. Watch the event live online when it begins!

AARP financial ambassador Jean Chatzky will be the keynote speaker for the Financial Security and Boomer Women Forum. Distinguished members of Congress, such as Congresswoman Edwards, will join female leaders in the private sector and AARP executives in a conversation around three of the many roles women hold today and how each impacts their retirement security. The issues include women as wage earners, women as entrepreneurs and women as caregivers.

Join AARP as we hear from leaders who have worked to improve women’s financial security in the public and private sector.
