A Volunteer, Field Trips, BOD Member Instagram Takeover
We want to give a shout-out to the Investment Firm Volunteers across the US and Canada who go into their local high schools to teach the RTSWS curriculum and inspire the next generation of female financiers!
Today, we are highlighting Investment Firm Volunteer, Allison Hill, Head of Diversity and Social Responsibility at Roark Capital.

What has been your favorite takeaway from this experience?

"Our favorite takeaway is the genuine curiosity of the students. They ask the best questions! And, questions that are so far above their level. When a 9th grader asks about Enterprise Value or you see the light bulbs go off when you talk about compound interest, it is truly rewarding. One Roark woman said teaching the class was one of her favorite days at work. Now that is saying something!"

Thank you, Allison, for all you give to RTSWS!

 RTSWS Field Trips

Over the past three weeks, girls from our 50+ partner high schools began to experience the second of the four components of the RTSWS academic year-long program - The Wall Street Experience Student Field Trip. The Wall Street field trip is a capstone experience whereby students are given a rare glimpse into the work lives of financiers. Over the next few weeks, the balance of our students will be learning firsthand what a career in the financial services field is like. 

Below are pictures from the Atlanta Girls' High School field trip to Roark Capital in Atlanta, GA.  

Students got the chance to sit in the Roark Capital Founder's chair!
"Many of the girls asked me if Roark is hiring and how to get a job here, so I think it’s safe to say their interest in finance grew with exposure!"

"From my time at RTSWS, the most memorable thing I learned is the importance of making connections and not being afraid to ask questions. With my mentor sessions, I was able to ask new things each week, and we were able to learn about some really specific aspects of the finance world. This really helped me in my internship, as it allowed me to have some confidence when asking my supervisor and the panelists my questions."

- Parker Kim, Junior at The Clinton School, NY, NY
