Achieving Financial Wellness With Mellody Hobson

Mountaintop Conversations By Saysh

Apr 4 2022 • 59 mins

Mellody Hobson, co-CEO and president of Ariel Investments, didn’t grow up privileged, but her mother constantly empowered her and let her know that she could do anything no matter the obstacles she might face due to her gender and race.  From a young age, Mellody learned how to advocate for herself and what she needed. Before attending Princeton University, fate would have her meet John W. Rogers Jr., founder and co-CEO of Ariel Investments, whom she’d eventually end up working with.  In this episode of Mountaintop Conversations, Mellody discusses how her mother motivated and influenced her to not only lead but also be a better mother to her daughter, Emory. She also shares her love for finance, her experience as a Black woman in a male-dominated field, why we need more diversity in all professions, especially the C-suite, and why financial literacy is one of the best gifts you can give yourself.
