I became introduced originally to Grace Institute through a colleague and friend who lead our firm's corporate sponsorship with the organization. Grace is an organization which helps under-resourced women make a re-entry into the workforce after being out for long periods of time, for various reasons. I started out leading tours and information sessions for the Grace Institute classes at my company, educating the women about my role in the financial technology industry and being a female leader in the industry as well. I've since become involved more on a personal level, mentoring the women on best practices for interviews, resumes, and building and growing a network. The success rate of these women who graduate from Grace's program and re-enter the workforce is so inspiring to me! Any chance I can give to determined and driven women who want to help themselves and their families is worth it!
