Liz Amelia Green, an alumna of the RespectAbility cohort of the WarnerMedia Access Early Career Bootcamp who also is a filmmaker as well as a volunteer financial counselor, hosted a session on personal finance and budgeting. The session was geared toward disabled creatives and filmmakers. Liz discussed budgeting, saving, the basics of investing and compound interest, insurance, and building a secure financial future so you can live and give. For all attendees, Liz offered up to two free additional 15-minute one-on-one sessions to dive deeper into individual situations.
