Equity Through Education

On September 22, BMO celebrates its 17th Annual Equity Through Education Trading Day.

This year, we also celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Baruch College Mentorship Program and our fantastic partnership with the Finance Women’s Association that’s made the program possible.

Here’s more on the impact of Equity Through Education and the FWA Baruch Program

[Senior Baruch College Student Voiceover]

Did you know that during the 2018-2019 academic year, 44% of undergraduates made history by becoming the first in their family to earn a college degree. Despite the challenges I faced, as a daughter of a single mother and victim of domestic violence, I managed to beat the odds and obtain acceptance into Baruch College. I am grateful to BMO Capital Markets Equity Through Education Program for investing in FWA. Your financial support was a big help to me, letting me focus on my studies and campus activities for the past two years.
