Women in Finance and Consulting
Our group aims provide business-related resources and information to Scripps students, foster an on-campus community of future industry professionals, and connect students with alumni. We will achieve this by making sure students are aware of industry-specific opportunities on ClaremontConnect, coordinating workshops on technical financial interviews, and providing on-campus networking opportunities, among other endeavors.
Membership is open to everyone. FAC does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, sex, religion, sexual orientation, political beliefs, or any other form. FAC may coordinate events with like-minded groups at all schools, but only Scripps students are eligible to enjoy significant monetary funds donated by alums. Any member whose behavior does not align with Scripps' code of conduct will forfeit their membership.Membership on executive board is determined by a selection committee appointed by the previous executive board.
Meetings are bi-weekly throughout the semester. The goal of each meeting is to plan at least three events and coordinate logistical information. In addition, executive board will determine guest speakers or ideas they want to see in an upcoming event.
Scripps FAC has invited guest speakers, employers, and alum from firms in the industries of finance, accounting, and consulting to talk about their experiences and help support students interested in their industry. In addition, FAC leads a couple of workshops regarding class registration, Linked-In and Resume building, and various other professional skills. We have partnered with SIF and Econ Society to bring a collaborative panel of students interested in such industries and career paths.
