As part of Mediant’s partnership with Rock The Street, Wall Street (RTSWS), a non-profit organization dedicated to preparing girls to be financially successful and inspiring them to pursue careers in finance, we recently hosted young women from Panther Creek High School in Cary, North Carolina for a half-day educational event about investing and saving.
This is the fifth consecutive year Mediant has collaborated with RTSWS with resources to support a year-long financial program to change the lives of high school girls in Cary.
Taking place at our operational headquarters in Cary, the first part of the event included a presentation, which focused on the impact of ESG on corporate issuers at annual general meetings and on shareholder engagement.
In addition, the students had an opportunity to hear from a certified financial planner from Heirloom Advisors about savings, Roth IRAs and IRA basics, as well as other general investment accounts.
Later in the day, a panel of Mediant women, including Jean Luther, Director of Compliance, Laura Franconi, Director of Issuer and Global Solutions, Autumn Green, Assistant Director of Operations, and Jennifer Yang, Tabulations Manager, talked about their career experiences in finance and the lessons learned.
