Bevon Joseph, co-founder of the Greenwood Project, was inspired to learn about financial services when he took his first job in the business as the trading floor “computer guy” for JPMorgan Chase in New York. He went on to work on Wall Street, but didn’t see many people in the field who looked like him. So he and his wife Elois started the Greenwood Project to expose high achieving students on Chicago’s south and west sides to career opportunities in the financial industry. He spoke at the virtual MarketsWiki Education “World of Opportunity 2020” event about why education, mentorship and internships are needed to close the opportunity gap for Black and Latinx students seeking to work in the financial industry.
