Thank you to all who attended this year’s Invest in Girls Champions of Financial Literacy Breakfast, an annual event which celebrates role models and advocates who see the promise in young women. The funding we receive provides free personal finance courses, mentoring, exposure to careers in finance through industry trips, speakers and internships, and, just as important, a supportive community for high school girls across the country. This year’s breakfast featured Jean Hynes, CEO of Wellington Management, and Valerie Mosley, Founder and Chief Visionary Officer of Upward Wealth. Both Jean and Valerie were inspiring speakers on the importance of financial learning. We were also so proud of our IIG students for sharing their stories and experiences!
Thanks to our generous sponsors and supporters, we raised over $220,000. With this support, we can continue to create future generations of financially literate girls and increase the number of women working in finance. Already looking forward to next year!
