Teacher comments on RTSWS program
“The students had a great experience here, visiting with a diverse panel of female leaders and experiences throughout the day – hands-on experiences in a corporate office in which they learned about different aspects of operations and sales, finance, management and technology.
Learning about professional females’ careers and the roads that they traveled, their success stories – the young ladies really liked hearing directly from them and taking away from their experiences. And at the heart of the matter all day, it was about mentorship and networking and building relationships to be successful.
In terms of managing their money – personally as well as professionally – the classroom portion of RTSWS, they’re bringing in the real world use of mathematics and showing them what they need to do in terms of accomplishing goals, both financially and otherwise – will certainly help them as they progress throughout their academic and personal lives.”
Panther Creek High School
Students from Panther Creek High School in Raleigh, NC visited the Mediant offices in Cary, NC. This was their RTSWS semester-end field trip. The field trip represents the second of three components of the RTSWS academic year long program.
Mediant handles the investor communications life cycle – including proxy statements, corporate actions, regulatory reports and prospectus services. The students learned about Mediant’s clients including brokers and banks, corporate issuers, funds and alternative investments and investment advisors. The students spent the day learning about the legal aspects of investing, fintech, proxies, impact of corporate actions and IPO’s. They learned too, that stock shareholders have the right to vote on matters of corporate policy as well as who will compose the members of a company’s board of directors. Great lesson on equity ownership.
