It’s tax season, so let’s talk about money management and finances with Hannah Bae, Lauren Hardie and Karen K. Ho, who will help guide journalists through some $ dos and don’ts. The webinar, hosted by Yung AAJA and moderated by Yung AAJA director Beena Raghavendran, will cover student loans/credit cards, budgeting and — because it’s tax season! — taxes for freelancers and full-time staffers. The webinar will take place on Thursday, March 12 from 8pm-9:30pm ET.
