The American Institute of CPAs has joined with the Labor Department's Women's Bureau in an initiative to help educate women about personal financial management. The partnership will combine the financial education efforts of both organizations -- the AICPA's 360 Degrees of Financial Literacy, and the Women's Bureau's Wi$e Up. The joint effort would provide Labor's Wi$e Up program with the institute's financial experts to support its on-line program and teleconference calls, as well as financial education workshops and conferences. The AICPA's 360 Degrees of Financial Literacy was launched last year with the support of state CPA societies. The program encourages CPAs to volunteer to help educate the public on various financial topics.
