This year's essay topic is: "As an aspiring black woman business leader, it is important to understand the following statistics related to financial well-being: Black women working full-time earn $0.68 for every dollar earned by white men. The net worth of black households in the U.S. is less than 15% that of white households. In 2013, the average household wealth for black families in the U.S. was $85,000.

As you enter the workforce over the next several years and begin to have significant earnings and income, what action(s) can you take to improve your financial knowledge and well-being both in the short and long term? What information do you think would be helpful to share with your peers to increase their financial literacy?" Essays must be 500-800 words.
