The Real HERoes initiative, in association with the Indian Women in Dubai Community and sponsored by Payit Digital Wallet, concluded its final session on November 16th, 2023. The initiative aimed to empower women and promote financial independence by discussing relevant topics.
This blog revisits the event discussions and explains panelists’ advice on making an impact with your money.
The last session discussed “Women of Impact,” and influential panelists shared their experiences, insights, and stories of overcoming obstacles in their respective professions. The panelists also discussed how not to react during a difficult situation and to keep positive vibes within to stay calm.
Although overcoming challenges isn’t easy, keeping your mind stable and using your energy in the right direction helps you make a bigger impact over a long period. The panelists also interacted with the audience to answer their questions. The event concluded with a special raffle by payit wherein three lucky audience members were each awarded AED 100 gift vouchers.
Making an impact with money involves strategic and intentional choices that align with your values and broader societal goals.
Here are several ways you can make a positive impact with your financial resources:
Invest in sustainable and socially responsible companies that align with your values and ESG factors.
Direct your spending toward local businesses, contributing to the growth and sustainability of your community. This helps create jobs and fosters economic development.
Donate to causes and organizations that you believe in. Consider supporting charities, nonprofits, or community initiatives that address social issues, environmental concerns, or other areas that align with your values.
Be mindful of your purchasing decisions. Support companies prioritizing ethical practices, fair labor conditions, and environmentally friendly production. Your consumer choices can influence corporate behavior.
Consider impact investing, where financial returns are sought alongside measurable social or environmental impacts. This approach combines financial success with contributing to positive change.
Support entrepreneurs in developing countries by providing microfinance loans to start or grow small businesses, thereby lifting communities from poverty.
It is essential to support educational programs, scholarships, or initiatives that ensure access to quality education for everyone. This will enable more people to gain the knowledge and skills they need to succeed.
Financial readiness is not just about having money; it’s about being prepared for various financial challenges. This involves developing a holistic approach to money management that encompasses budgeting, savings, investments, and financial resilience.
Let’s see some of the most common challenges and how you can be financially prepared by overcoming them with the right solutions.
