RTSWS Goes to Washington D.C.
Visiting with Senator Rosen's office to discuss The U.S. Senate Women in STEM Caucus

This week, Maura Cunningham (CEO & Founder) and Sarah Sepanski (RTSWS Student Learning & Development Manager) traveled to Washington D.C. to meet with members of Senator Jacky Rosen’s office to discuss the U.S. Senate Women in STEM Caucus, a newly launched initiative by Senator Rosen (D-NV) and Senator Capito (R-WV).

The Senate Women in STEM Caucus is a bipartisan group that is working to advance women in science, technology, engineering, and math education and careers. RTSWS is working with Senator Rosen's office in developing policy in connection with specifically the M in STEM as it relates to gender and racial equity in finance. 
During their time in D.C., Maura and Sarah also met with members and staff of The CFP Board, Nasdaq, Investment Company Institute, The National Cathedral School, and KIPP DC College Preparatory.
