Welcome to another episode of the Conversations for Financial Professionals podcast where we are shaping the next generation of financial advice.
Today we have Elois Joseph, MBA who is an accomplished financial services professional with an extensive career in brokerage operations, regulatory compliance, and exchange registration services. She holds a MBA from Northern Illinois University and a BA in Journalism from Columbia College Chicago. Her career spans 20+ years; however, she could no longer resist the call to dedicate her expertise full-time to the Greenwood Project.
Over the last two years, Elois has harnessed her expertise to bolster the capacity of The Greenwood Project by creating a framework to expose and educate minority students to a world that they never knew existed. Consequently, the organization grew from serving 120 students and 8 firms in 2017 to 400+students and 50 partner firms in 2021.
The Greenwood Project introduces Black and LatinX students to careers within the financial industry via paid summer internships, educational field trips and their summer institute for high school students. The organization was established five years ago by Elois and her husband, Bevon Joseph. Initially, the organization’s mission was to introduce academically talented students from Chicago's under-resourced communities to opportunities within the financial industry. However, they have now expanded that mission to reach Black and LatinX youth nationwide.
