GIRLS WHO INVEST CELEBRATES INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

Girls Who Invest has impacted over 700 women across its programs;
The
number of internship partner firms has grown to approximately 100

Girls Who Invest (GWI), a non-profit organization dedicated to
increasing the number of women in portfolio management and executive
leadership in the asset management industry, is thrilled to observe
International Women’s Day. Studies show that gender diversity leads to
various positive outcomes including higher returns on investment.1
Girls Who Invest encourages diversity across multiple angles including
gender, ethnic heritage, socioeconomic status and different types of
backgrounds such as schools, majors, interests and geography.

This year’s International Women’s Day theme of “Balance for Better” is
illustrated through a video of GWI Scholars who achieve personal balance
through hobbies and talents beyond academia. Through their distinct
perspectives and multi-faceted passions, they add balance and diversity
integral to the asset management industry. To view the video, click

.

Recent Girls Who Invest milestones include:

  • Expanding our flagship 10-week Summer Intensive Program to reach 340
    scholars since 2016 with over 80% of past scholars pursuing careers in
    investment management
  • Continuing our focus on multiple aspects of diversity, our 2019 summer
    program cohort represents 62 universities with 50 distinct
    undergraduate majors, 23% are from public schools, 23% identify as
    economically disadvantaged and 20% are underrepresented minorities
  • Growing the GWI Online Learners program in partnership with Executive
    Education at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and
    the CFA Institute to reach a greater pool of diverse talent

“Girls Who Invest is working to improve gender balance in the asset
management industry and executive ranks of finance. We’ve recruited
talented undergraduates for our 2019 summer intensive program from
colleges and universities spanning from Washington State to Florida who
will bring diverse perspectives and talents in order to optimize returns
and increase shared prosperity.” – Janet Cowell, CEO

In addition to celebrating our GWI Scholars on International Women’s Day
2019, Girls Who Invest celebrates our partners. These firms have played
a vital role in supporting our mission and have championed progress
towards a more inclusive and diverse workforce. Since 2016, the number
of internship partners has nearly quadrupled to about 100 organizations.
