Chief Executive Officer
Girls Who Invest is always looking for companies country-wide to participate in their program, and it's possible to do so in a multitude of ways! During their inaugural intensive session, the nonprofit enlisted speakers from assorted firms, such as AB
, T. Rowe Price
, Acadian Asset Management
, amongst others, who educated the young women on various aspects of the asset management sector. Companies can also participate by offering internships to the well-qualified graduates of the program.
"Our mission is to expand the pipeline of talent," Kathleen Dunlap
, CEO of Girls Who Invest states, in reference to their mission of having 30 percent of the world's investable capital managed by women in 2030.
Girls Who Invest's inaugural program began this past summer at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Carefully selected college freshman and sophomore women were invited to participate in a robust, four-week intensive program, learning core concepts of finance and investment. At the conclusion of the rigorous month-long program, these well-prepared young women were placed in paid internships at top asset management firms. This year, the graduating class totaled 30 participants. Next year, that number will double to 60.
