Some of our most notable diversity efforts have focused on initiatives to ensure that women have equal opportunity at our firm and across our industry.
The Women’s Resource Group (WRG) was launched in 2011 with the goal of uniting and empowering Stout's network of talented professional women. The group aims to leverage business and philanthropic opportunities and provide relevant professional-development programs to help women in the workplace achieve success and enhance the overall employee experience at the firm. WRG's various committees focus on a range of opportunities including promoting Stout to women outside the organization, internal programming, and recruitment. The group also manages the Stout women's conference, which focuses on networking and relationship building by bringing women professionals together. The conference includes a series of networking workshops, mentoring seminars, and panel presentations.
In 2016, the Women’s Resource Group granted six Stout Women in Business Scholarships, which were awarded to qualified female students pursuing finance careers. Scholarship recipients were chosen based on their ability to demonstrate Stout’s core values through academic and extracurricular achievements. Congratulations to the 2016 scholarship recipients.
