Studies show that women are far less likely to invest their assets and occupy less than 15% of all executive finance positions. We aim to combat these inequities by providing young women with the confidence, knowledge, and skills to break into the finance industry and grow their earning potential and career horizons to be on par with their male counterparts.
Women are 20% more likely to hold their assets in cash, rather than invest, compared to men. This leads to wealth disparities in the long run.
While 46% of financial services employees are women, only 15% of executive positions are held by women. In private equity, venture capital, and hedge funds, the number drops to 6%, 9%, and 11%.
Men disproportionately major in finance in college: only 38% of all finance majors are female. Later exposure to finance results in fewer women pursuing careers in finance.
