Summer 2018 Brown Advisory Fellowship Reflection

The Summer of 2017 marked the launch of our first summer internship program through a partnership with Brown Advisory.

Brown Advisory is a private, independent investment and strategic advisory firm. This mission is to make a material and positive difference for our clients by delivering a combination of first-class investment performance, strategic advice and the highest level of service.

The Brown Advisory Fellowship is a three week intensive designed to immerse Invest In Girls participants interested in pursuing finance careers in the industry. During the program they get the opportunity to shadow a variety of professionals working in different sectors of the industry. A Brown Advisory finance professional at each site guides the fellows through the program giving them advice, insight and professional development that they can take with them to their future careers. Fellows are required to complete an end of program project aimed at reaching their peers and researching a major issue that is currently trending within industry discussions.

Summer 2018 marked the second year of this partnership. Students from all 3 Invest In Girls program regions (Baltimore, Boston & New York City) took part in the fellowship representing independent, charter and public schools. Students presented their final projects in a Brown Advisory company wide meeting that brought together all of their domestic and international offices.

We are very proud of the work our students did this summer and want to thank out partner Brown Advisory for their continued support of our mission and the active role they have undertaken in helping us achieve it.
