      Women in Finance: Addressing the Gender Short in Financial Services & Investment Management Panel Discussion
      Essex House, New York City

      Franklin Templeton held a panel discussion, Women in Finance: Addressing the Big Gender Short in Financial Services and Investment Management. It was well attended by attendees of F.T.’s larger conference, Global Investment Forum 2022Katrina Dudley, a Franklin Templeton Portfolio Manager and RTSWS lead volunteer, is the co-author of the book that prompted this special event.
      Maura Cunnigham, RTSWS CEO & Founder, kicked off the panel discussion by suggesting that if the financial services industry wants to recruit more women into the profession, they are waiting too long by approaching them at the college level. Instead, young women need to be recruited at an earlier age – in high school as girls in the U.S. fall out of math early.
      Maura then thanked Franklin Templeton for its long-standing support of RTSWS student cohorts in Newark, NJ, and San Mateo, CA.
      Three of our NYC Student CEOs were guests of F.T. at the event and had an incredible opportunity to hear from the featured speakers, network with female financial professionals, and even met the former President of the New York Stock Exchange, Stacey Cunningham

      About the “Changing Girls’ Mindsets on Financial Education” Panel

      Improving girls’ financial education and literacy in high school is critical to changing America’s gender wage and wealth inequalities, the college debt crisis (which disproportionately affects women), and creating a more diverse financial industry. We must teach girls to be fiscally confident by familiarizing them with financial terms, exposing them to female role models, teaching them about investing (not just budgets), and opening their eyes to how finance affects their lives.
