Please join us for networking and a fireside chat with the Founder and CEO of Rock the Street, Wall Street, a non-profit organization designed to spark the interest of high school girls into careers in finance through a financial literacy program. Learn about Maura’s career, why she founded a non-profit and how she is helping close the gender wage gap by inspiring more girls to take control of their financial lives and join the finance profession.
This is a free member event co-hosted by the CFA Society Orange County and Women in Pensions Network Southern California Chapter.
FOUNDER AND CEO
ROCK THE STREET, WALL STREET
Maura is helping girls view math-focused fields of study as compatible with a career that has a positive impact on the world. RTSWS sparks girls’ enthusiasm for finance at a critical age and makes them aware of the societal benefits personal financial knowledge and math-oriented careers can have. Since the organization’s inception in 2013, more than 1,750 girls across 17 U.S. cities have graduated from the year-long program. Maura’s passion is driven by her personal experience, being one of the few women in the room during her days on Wall Street.
Before dedicating herself full-time to RTSWS, Maura spent 25 years in financial services, working in Capital Markets, Real Estate Syndication, Mortgage-Backed Securities, and financial planning.
