Objective and Benefits
The objective of the Women in Wealth Management Mentoring program is to promote relationships between students interested in asset and wealth management with respected leaders in the industry. The rewards are mutually beneficial! In addition to the multitude of benefits our students gain from partnering with their mentor, our Women in Wealth Management professionals welcome the fresh perspectives and ideas from their students through reverse mentorship.
The Women’s Mentoring Program has been so invaluable. With my mentor’s help I received a full-time offer to join The Blackstone Group to work with their Private Wealth Solutions Team. This experience proved instrumental to the beginning of my career in finance.
The mentorship that I formed through the Women in Wealth program was instrumental in helping me make the decision to accept my employment offer from PwC. Christine’s accessibility through email and phone was an invaluable support system. Even though Christine’s area was different from mine, her outside perspective and advice provided me with unique insights that I will carry with me far beyond college.
We have an obligation and a responsibility to be investing in our students and our schools. We must make sure that people who have the grades, the desire and the will, but not the money, can still get the best education possible.
Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.
