Empowering the Next Generation of Professionals

click image for brochure

For the 2018-2019 academic year, the Financial Women’s Association (FWA) Graduate School Partnership committee, with the support from BMO Capital Markets’ Equity Through Education Program, offered 20 women graduate students from Baruch College Zicklin School of Business awards to attend various professional conferences ranging from impact investing to accounting. With 60% of the students coming from households with income of less than $40,000[1], Baruch College students often cannot afford to participate in extracurricular activities including professional conferences, which offer development and networking opportunities outside of the classroom that are crucial for career advancement.

The Graduate School Partnership committee is proud to lead this initiative and to continue the FWA’s mission to contribute to our communities and prepare the next generation of professionals.

In the online booklet below, the awardees share their experience at the different conferences and express their gratitude for both the FWA and BMO Capital Markets.
