Below, please provide an explanation in support of your chosen nominee.
  Danielle has been an active YLG volunteer in the last few years and has provided good event suggestions

– Participated as a volunteer since our partnership with Rock the Street Wall Street began in 2019 and has mentored 2 high school female students. In addition, she has taught 5+ financial literacy classes during Fall 2019 and Fall 2020. She is organized in her preparation for her sessions and continues to demonstrate that she is a champion for promoting women in finance.
– Served as a volunteer in YLG’s inaugural Women’s Mentorship Program in 2019 to help organize kick off reception and year-end celebration events, as well as prepare program documentation. Continued to volunteer for the Program’s second year cohort (to launch in early 2021), leading the mentor/mentee application matching process
– Initiated the university speed networking event idea with her Alma Mater, Bucknell University, catered to interns in NYC in summer 2020 (event unfortunately on hold due to COVID lockdown)
– Volunteered for several university speed networking events, and attended a variety of YLG social and thought leadership events

To split up YLG’s event planning responsibilities and ensure we continue to deliver high quality events and valuable resources to our members, we plan to have each Co-Vice Chair take on one of the following roles. We believe having dedicated focus in a Vice-Chair role leverages each vice-chair’s past volunteer experience at YLG and their varied interests in giving back to the CFANY community. Having 5 vice-chairs and 2 co-chairs would minimize any potential burnout and will have sufficient back-up / coverage if any of the leadership team member would need to step down. To provide additional personal development opportunities for each Vice-Chair, we may look to rotate their role after 6-12 months to further enhance their leadership, communication, presentation and project management skills.
Initial vice-chair role assignment:
– VC Mentorships & Community Outreach (Rock the Street Wall Street, Universities) – Danielle McKenna
– VC Thought Leadership (Social and Market/Investment-Related events) – Rodrigo Cortez
– VC Partnerships – External (Kaplan / vendors, other societies, other professional organizations) – Alex Schumacher
– VC Partnerships – Internal (Intra-CFANY Groups' Liaison) – Rohan Parikh
– VC Communications (Distribution List – Email & LinkedIn, Event Promotions, Newsletter) – Tiffany Li
