In this episode of Money Tales, our guest is Robin Hauser. Robin is an award-winning director of documentary films at Finish Line Features. In 2021 she released the documentary, $avvy, which contemplates the historical, cultural and societal norms around women and money and explores why it’s critical for women to take an active role in managing personal finance. This film was inspired by Robin’s personal experience of going through divorce after twenty-four years of marriage. As Robin tells us, she felt shame at that time for having taken her eyes off of their personal finances. Simultaneously, she realized she was solely responsible for her own financial wellbeing.
Robin is the director and producer of award-winning documentaries (CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap, Bias, $avvy, Running for Jim) made to illuminate causes about which she is passionate. Those include the gender gap in tech, unconscious bias, equality and ﬁnancial literacy. Robin’s work has carried her around the world, from the TED and TEDx stage to the White House, NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, and conferences worldwide, speaking about mitigating bias in artiﬁcial intelligence, diversity, inclusion, ﬁnancial wellness and gender equality. A self-described “disruptor,” Robin is committed to provoking thought to address the most important socio-economic issues we face today.
