Meet our Honoree, RBC Capital Markets
RBC Capital Markets has been a long-time supporter of Girls Inc. through Board involvement and volunteerism. RBC expanded their relationship with Girls Inc. of the Greater Capital Region by becoming a sponsor of the 2nd cohort of Eureka! girls, which started their 5-year journey in 2013. They not only provided financial support for their cohort, but also brought the girls to their New York City headquarters for fields trips in their 1st and 2nd summers during Eureka! Camp. The girls were able to meet professional women at RBC to learn more about what they do and to tour RBC's Trading Floor, which was also used as the set for the movie Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. RBC then utilized relationships with some of its clients and arranged for a private tour of Bryant Park and the 9/11 Memorial. Ironically, the girls in this Eureka! cohort were all born the year the tragic events of 9/11 occurred.
RBC has also helped further the mission of Girls Inc. and increase awareness about what we do by hosting a viewing of the film Girl Rising and having Girls Inc. staff included on the panel.
As the Girls Inc. Eureka! cohort, sponsored by RBC, gets ready to graduate from high school this year, we honor and recognize the many contributions and partnerships we have enjoyed with RBC Capital Markets.
