This academic year, RTSWS is offering its programming in a total of 52 high schools across 27 cities... and we've added our first inernational city - Vancouver, Canada to our family!  
More girls will now have access to a financial education, real life role models of women in STEM and personalized academic/ college/ career counseling.

These students will now get to see women in finance coming through their doors (or on Zoom) this year to teach financial and investment education. We are just getting our cohorts started and here's what one of our volunteers had to say about her RTSWS students...
"I personally truly enjoyed connecting with the girls, sharing my own experiences with them and “lessons learned” as a woman in Finance. A lot of them were really interested in connecting with me as their Vanderbilt contact (since their college chapter is coming up!), and I told them that I am happy to help in any way I can. I am excited to help and be a part of this great cause. As Vanderbilt’s diversity officer, representing 110 people in Central Finance at Vanderbilt, I find your project near and dear to my heart, and I am happy to contribute to your efforts of getting more girls/women into Finance."

In the upcoming weeks and months, you will start to notice more images of our "Student Stories" on our Instagram account and on our website. We have been talking with RTSWS alumnae and they have been sharing how the RTSWS program impacted their lives. We will be featuring alumnae who are still in high school, in college and post college. 

It's because of your support that we are able to have such a profund and lasting impact. We hope you share in the pride we all feel when we read these stories, too.

Undiversified: The Big Gender Short in Investment Management

"In Undiversified, experienced practitioners Ellen Carr and Katrina Dudley (a RTSWS volunteer in Short Hills, NJ)examine the lack of women in investment management and propose solutions to improve the imbalance. They explore the barriers that subtly but effectively discourage women from entering and staying in the industry at each point in the pipeline. 
At the entry level, the lack of visible role models discourages students from considering the field, and those who do embark on an investment management career face many obstacles to retention and promotion. Carr and Dudley highlight the importance of informal knowledge about how to navigate career tracks, without which women are left at a disadvantage in an industry that lionizes confidence. They showcase a diverse constellation of successful female portfolio managers to demystify the profession."
Network with us on LinkedIn!
