John Lothian News is pleased to announce a 2020 virtual event for the MarketsWiki Education World of Opportunity series. The one-day event will be held on Wednesday, July 22 from 1:30 to 3:30 PM CDT.
The online only event is FREE to registered participants. Click HERE to register.
The lineup of speakers includes PEAK6 Founder Jenny Just, Greenwood Project Co-Founder Bevon Joseph, Chicago Federal Reserve Vice President Alessandro Cocco, OCC Vice President of Talent Acquisition Andre Buckles, and author, former regulator and lawyer Eileen Flaherty.
Just will address why she has stayed in the fintech industry for over 25 years and how challenging the status quo makes her company better.Joseph will talk about the effort in the Chicago financial markets to bring racial equality to the industry through an innovative intern program for inner city youth. Cocco will speak about “Will climate change impact your career in finance?” Buckles will talk about how the pandemic will change the job markets and Flaherty will talk about her career and the novel about to be published that is based on it.
The World of Opportunity series is aimed at interns, college students, new employees or anyone who is interested in a career in the financial markets. Our goal is to educate and inspire the next generation of industry professionals through insightful presentations by industry leaders.
We know this is not a typical year for college students and interns. Firms that have interns are employing them remotely. And the event is being held online, rather than in person at a financial district venue.
We encourage readers of JLN to spread the word about the series and invite college age family, friends, colleagues or anyone else to attend this year’s virtual event.
Also, JLN will be offering additional new presentations from industry speakers for the World of Opportunity series that will be recorded ahead of time and then shared publicly.
More information about the World of Opportunity series is available on MarketsWiki.com, or MarketsWikiEducation.com, including videos of previous years’ presentations. The World of Opportunity series was launched in 2013 and has been presented in Chicago, New York, London and Stockholm.
