In our perfect world, there isn't a single woman or non-binary person that feels overwhelmed by managing their money.
We know that closing the gender gap in financial literacy is not the final hill to climb in the trek towards gender equity. We wish it were that simple.
Juno can’t fix it all.
Our aim is to equip all women and non-binary people with the knowledge to navigate this patriarchal, mythically-meritocratic society in which we find ourselves.
The system may be broken, but we cannot change what we do not understand.
We OBSESS over our community's success
Force for good
We strive for radical inclusivity
We believe money as a force for good
We aim for progress over perfection
Margot & Alexia
Co-founders of Your Juno
"Money was never a taboo at home. We were raised by a single mom who was very financially savvy and encouraged talking about finance at the dinner table.".
Your Juno was founded by two sisters: Margot and Alexia.
Unsurprisingly, both Alexia and Margot went on to study and work in economics and finance. "During the pandemic - as markets came crashing down - we noticed a huge difference in the types on conversations we were having with our guy- and girlfriends. Men were talking about their crypto investments and bragging about their returns, whereas women were never speaking about investing."
This is when they discovered the gender gap in financial literacy. In almost every country, women are both less knowledgable and confident when it comes to finance.
"We decided to build a financial empowerment platform aimed at providing the best education in a fun way - a bit like the Duolingo of Money"
How do you think about inclusivity?
We especially welcome trans women and women with visible or invisible disabilities to our platform.
If you don't identify with any of the above, please be mindful of how much space you take up. We welcome you to our education spaces and the app to address the gender wealth gap. We need allies on our mission and appreciate you will still learn from our content.
Our priority is to make Juno a safe space and that will mean some events and our slack channel are catered specifically for women and non-binary people.
"Women" are not a homogenous group. Different categories of people have different experiences. Black, Asian, and minority ethnic women face intersectional discrimination, experiencing sexism differently from white women in a society that privileges whiteness. Trans women lack the privilege of cis-gender women; people with disabilities are not enabled to participate in work to the same extent as able-bodied citizens; migrants are often excluded from the very financial systems that we want to help you understand.
