Who We Are
Dope L-EARNing, LLC teaches financial literacy for women. Our purpose is to educate, inspire and empower women to achieve and sustain financial wellness.
Women are at a critical juncture when it comes to financial freedom. Why? Because females are especially vulnerable due to imbalance and biases at work and home. Whether you’re a young woman entering the workforce, have experienced financial missteps, or evolving into a new phase of your life - your financial security matters.
Women are silently struggling with handling their money and building financial wellness, putting their retirement funds, personal relationships, and health at risk. Dope L-EARNing’s unique problem-solving methodology is geared toward helping women take an uncomplicated approach to financial wellness.
Dope L-EARNing can help if you:
Don’t know a lot about personal finances
Are worried all the time about money
Don’t have your finances in order
Want to learn the skills to manage your financial independence
Are ready to take control of your finances and change your financial story in 2022
Meet Stephanie Francis
CEO of Dope L-EARNing
To give women the financial tools to thrive in every aspect of their lives.
My name is Stephanie Francis. I'm a life-long resident of Harlem, New York, and mother to three curious, thoughtful, and kind children. I'm a sought-after educator. I hold a bachelor’s degree from The State University of New York at Albany and three master’s degrees from Mercy College and Fordham University.
My passion is education. My mother instilled in me the importance of helping others from an early age, which I believe has helped shape the person I am today. I have taught for over two decades. Currently, I teach STEM, and Financial Literacy to young people. My work focuses on teaching tools necessary for a future of financial freedom, breaking the poverty cycle, and sowing the seeds of generational wealth.
I'm committed to ensuring women of all ages and at any stage in their life receive adequate financial literacy. I've experienced my own misfortunes and financial mistakes due to a lack of knowledge. After witnessing firsthand, the dire need for better financial literacy, I founded Dope L-EARNing to create a community and space dedicated to helping women achieve their financial dreams.
I've reached significant milestones in my career as a teacher, but as any educator will tell you, our desire to teach never diminishes. My passion and enthusiasm for education have paved the journey for my latest venture, Dope L-EARNing. Dope L-EARNing is a financial literacy source for women. Driven by the understanding that women must have access to wealth-building opportunities to achieve financial freedom, Dope L-EARNing serves as a tool, resource, and guideline to assist women of all different backgrounds with financial literacy to take control of their finances. Women are systematically excluded from financial education. Dope L-EARNing is changing the narrative for women.
Community means the world to me. Dope L-EARNing is a learning community that educates, empowers, and equips women to feel confident in making sound financial decisions and support other women in the Dope L-EARNing community.
I am excited that we are taking this journey together to become Women Informed Financially Educated.
