March 2020: This International Women’s Day, SOCIAL collaborated with LXME – India’s first financial planning platform for women and hosted a panel discussion on financial independence, aptly called Girls Just Want To Have Funds. Some remarkable women like Aneesha Kotwani, Founder, Wavlngth; Guneet Monga, Producer, Entrepreneur, Academy Award Winner, BAFTA Nominee and Sucharita Tyagi, Film Critic, RJ, Entrepreneur; Tanisha Fagwani, Founder, EFG Store (Host) and Priti Rathi Gupta, Founder, LXME; Financial Feminist (Moderator) shared their success stories at this collaborative event hosted at antiSOCIAL Mumbai on Sunday, March 08, 2020.

The event commenced with an open mic session featuring unique performances from upcoming female standup artists. The informative panel discussion touched upon the topic of ‘Revolutionizing financial independence for women and smashing the patriarchy at the same time’, for which SOCIAL turned to a like-minded vertical, the financial planning platform – LXME.

Speaking on the panel, Guneet Monga, Filmmaker & Oscar Winner said, “I have been an avid user of LXME and support it with all my heart to promote women to invest. It is made for the women and by women. It has empowered me and I would tell everyone to start now. It’s time that every woman should start choosing to make her own investments, which meet her goals and dreams. On Women’s Day, it’s amazing to sit on a panel with other empowered women across age groups and talk about investments. Let’s make sure our money works as hard for us as we do.”

The discussion incorporated views from the various panellists on Financial Goals to Risk Management, Investment Strategies, Retirement Planning, and Estate Planning to educate and empower the women audiences. Moderated by LXME founder and finance expert, Priti Rathi Gupta, the attendees took notes on networking for entrepreneurs, how to build a strong financial backbone, and also how to leverage solid business partnerships, to succeed.

Divya Aggarwal, Marketing Head, Impresario Handmade Restaurants, shared her views regarding this initiative, “At the epicentre of every community are women who make it what it is. It is up to brands like us to not only lend our support but also enable change on-ground. This collaboration

with LXME will ensure that a serious concept like financial freedom is understood without the taboo and hesitation sometimes associated with it. We’re leaving behind that outdated culture of letting the men in the household be in charge of our finances.”
