August 5, 2021 (New York, NY) – theSkimm, the female-founded, mission-driven company dedicated to helping a generation of women live their smartest lives, today announced the launch of ‘SkimmU Special Edition: Crypto.’ Taking place virtually on August 10 at 7:30pm ET, topics will include why everyone’s talking about crypto now, what to consider before diving in wallet-first, and what crypto could mean for the future of money. 

This free, 45-minute panel discussion will be led by theSkimm’s resident money expert, Elyse Steinhaus (Deputy Managing Editor, Finance) and presented by Grayscale Investments. The conversation will feature experts in crypto including:

  • Rayhaneh Sharif-Askary, Director of Investor Relations and Business Development, Grayscale Investments 

  • Ria Bhutoria, Principal at Castle Island Ventures

  • Farnoosh Torabi, CNET Editor at Large, financial author and host of the podcast, “So Money”

In March 2021, theSkimm launched SkimmU, a free virtual event series teaching you the crucial life lessons your alma mater never did. The first SkimmU semester, sponsored by Fidelity, was designed to help women take control of their finances amid the “shecession,” the recession that disproportionately impacted women during the pandemic. With more than 77,000 RSVPs, SkimmU included four expert-led courses, including Psychology of Money, Budgeting for the Big Stuff, Starting Your Side Hustle, and Investing 101.
