Skills Based Volunteerism
While we normally focus our newsletters on our students and the strides they’re making in coming closer to the world of finance, today, we’d like to put a spotlight on two of our volunteers at Broadridge. These two women, Michelle Jackson and Theresa Harvin, are change agents for their organization and in their local communities as they bring corporate sponsored skills based volunteerism to one of their local high schools in New York City.

Click the video and listen in as Michelle shares her thoughts on how volunteering with RTSWS has made her think more about what she does inside her own organization on grooming young women for leadership positions. You’ll also hear how she’s doing her part to demystify numbers, math and finance to get more girls financially independent and into the financial services industry.
Field Trip to NASDAQ Offices
Broadridge has sponsored the RTSWS program at Baruch College Campus High School for the past two years. The second component of the year long program saw the girls head downtown to the Nasdaq offices in lower Manhattan. There, they learned FIRST HAND about the business of Nasdaq, global equity markets, investment careers, fintech careers and recommended college paths. They took a tour of the offices, listened in to a panel discussion with female financial professionals and participated in a lightening round Q & A session.

Lead Broadridge Volunteer
Theresa shares why she stepped forward with RTSWS
- The field trip with the students to Nasdaq – to see the RTSWS class work in action in a business setting. It’s enlightening to see it through their eyes – the questions that they ask.
- Some of the girls at Baruch participated in the program last year and have come back this year and even recommend other students to the program.
- The leadership skills I’ve seen grow over the time since we first met our students, has included their increasing degree of comfort to ask more questions and be more inquisitive about financial services and really digging into learning more about those opportunities.”
