Wall Street Bound, Inc. is a non-profit financial education, training, and mentoring organization focused on recruiting and preparing diverse college and university students for careers in finance and investing.
“Given INROADS’ long and established history of delivering on their mission and working to prepare underrepresented talent for career success, working together makes sense because together we can accomplish more.”
“INROADS’ large national footprint, ‘blue chip’ pipeline and soft skills training, combined with Wall Street Bound’s industry knowledge DNA, growing brand and impact as the technical ‘tip of the spear’, together form a force multiplier toward the common goal of creating a leading-edge, large-scale diversity solutions platform for the financial services industry,” said Prince of Troy, CAIA, Founder and CEO of Wall Street Bound.
“Wealth in America is disproportionate and access to opportunity is not equitable. That is why INROADS pursues a 50-year mission of equity, providing access, preparation, and opportunity to improve academic and career outcomes for students of color. We are excited to partner with Wall Street Bound as they bring expertise and passion to prepare and connect students for long-term careers in the financial services industry,” said Forest T. Harper, Jr., President and CEO, INROADS.
