In a recent article by Julius Buchanan, Editor-in-Chief of Wealth Solutions Report, Maura Cunningham, Founder of Rock The Street, Wall Street (RTSWS), emphasizes the importance of early intervention in girls’ math education to close the gender gap in finance. Cunningham explains how girls’ interest and performance in math often wane after elementary school, making high school a crucial time for targeted support.

RTSWS operates in over 25 cities across three countries, impacting over 6,000 young women by reigniting their enthusiasm for math and finance. Through 100% female financial professional instructors, RTSWS provides financial literacy programs, mentorship, and real-world access to finance firms.

“Our industry must bolster support for early intervention programs and actively engage with school clubs to attract female talent,” Cunningham states.
