2 days left to nominate an elected woman!

The Elected Women of Excellence Award was created to identify elected women who have worked tirelessly, often breaking down barriers and overcoming obstacles that once seemed insurmountable, to serve their communities.

These pacesetters have engendered an environment where women can now serve in public office and fight for the issues they are passionate about. At most, one Republican and one Democrat from each state can be selected for this prestigious honor.

Nominate An Elected Woman

One of our most valued partners, The Society of Human Resource Management, has brought us another amazing video this year! Take a moment to watch and reflect on history and the future of
women’s rights and equality.

When We Invest in Women,We Invest in Everyone

A recent study by the George Washington University School of Business found that about two-thirds of the financial literacy gender gap is explained by lower financial knowledge and the remaining one-third is due to lower confidence.

At Capital One we believe women are a powerful financial force- after all, they control over $31.8 trillion in worldwide spending1, and we are committed to supporting their financial well-being and removing the barriers that can impact financial freedom.

Our educational programs help women set financial goals and develop strategies to achieve them. We partner with trusted organizations that empower women like Dress for Success and offer a financial education curriculum focused on personal finance and establishing independence. This partnership builds on Capital One’s initial $200 million, multi-year commitment to advance socioeconomic mobility through the Capital One Impact Initiative. Learn more here.
