On this week's Queer Money show we invite Josh Stoffregen, the VP of Global Communications & Workplace Solutions at Prudential Financial to join us to discuss the state of financial wellness for the LGBTQ community in America.
He joined the team in 2009 and served as the project lead for the firm’s 2012 LGBT Financial Experience Survey. Josh was also the President of Prudential’s enterprise-wide LGBT organization from 2010 to 2014. Today, he joins us to share the findings of the company’s latest research, the 2018 Financial Wellness Census and its sub-study of diverse populations, The Cut.
Josh walks us through the numbers, discussing the areas where the queer community has progressed in the last ten years as well as our remaining challenges when it comes to financial wellness. He reflects on what’s preventing the general population of the US—and the LGBTQ community specifically—from achieving financial security. Josh also offers insight into Prudential’s approach to recognizing the queer community year-round and covers some of the company’s upcoming LGBTQ events and partnerships. Listen in to understand Prudential’s latest data around the state of LGBTQ financial wellness and learn how financial stability improves other aspects of your life, including your overall mental and physical health!
