Please join us for networking opportunities and a fireside chat with Founder and CEO, Maura Cunningham. Attendees will hear her fascinating and compelling stories of being a woman navigating Wall Street, and why she founded the non-profit organization, Rock the Street, Wall Street. Her organization seeks to close the gender wage gap by educating girls to take control of their financial lives and join the finance profession. There will be plenty of networking opportunities before and after the program with appetizers and drinks available. This event is co-hosted with the CFA Society Orange County Women in Finance networking group.
About Our Speaker
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.
