Moving Girls Forward in the Field of Finance
RTSWS is a financial literacy and leadership program designed to spark the interest high school girls, so they see the relevance of math in everyday life and possibly visualize a pathway to a career in finance.
Rock The Street, Wall Street, was launched as a Nashville-based nonprofit by former Wall Street executive Maura Cunningham. We work with schools and civic organizations around the country to bring our program to young women at the high school level. Knowledge is power. Two out of three women, nearly 70%, state they know little to nothing about finance. By reaching out to students while in high school, we'll commission them to take charge of their finances at an early age. We illuminate the relevance of finance in every day life and encourage girls to study math and seek a profession in the financial industry, where women are vastly under-represented and comprise only 6% of the industry leaders.
