The Texas A&M Foundation invites women of all ages to attend its fifth annual Women, Wealth, and Wisdom workshop at the College Station Hilton Conference Center on Friday, May 20, from 8:15am to 3:15pm. This free event will include expert insights and advice on financial and estate planning, savings, investing, and Social Security to encourage women to take ownership of their finances. Breakfast and lunch will be served. Registration is required.

“Each year we strive to make Women, Wealth, and Wisdom better than the previous year, providing valuable information that will resonate with women in any stage of life,” said Angela Throne, gift planning officer at the Texas A&M Foundation and co-chair of the event. “This year, we’re especially excited to have a panel predominantly comprised of Aggie women who will empower attendees to stay actively involved in their long-term financial and estate plans.”

The event will include a keynote address from Karen Walrond, a Houston-based speaker, author, and photographer. A 1988 graduate of Texas A&M University with a degree in civil engineering, Walrond is well-known for her website Chookalonks. Her presentation will be based on her bestselling book, The Beauty of Different, a celebration of the many ways we are all unique.

Walrond speaks worldwide on leadership development, creativity, diversity, and social media. She has presented at TEDxHouston and appeared on a variety of media outlets including PBS, The Huffington Post,, and The Oprah Winfrey Show.

This year’s workshop will also include sessions on aging parents, estate planning, communicating with your physician, and budgeting for your bucket list.
