On Friday, February 21, 2014, the Undergraduate Stern Women in Business (USWIB) held their third annual conference. It was an amazing experience that showed how hard the USWIB conference team and especially Casandra Rose Pinamont, manager of the conference, worked to make the conference come to life. The conference included students from several different universities and sponsors from Macquarie, BNP Paribas, Guggenheim Partners, Societe Generale, J.P. Morgan, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Accenture, Ernst & Young, KPMG, Deloitte, and Capgemini.
The day opened with a talk by Solita Marcelli, the Global Head of Fixed Income for Global Wealth Management at J.P. Morgan. Growing up in Europe, Mrs. Marcelli had to persuade her parents to let her leave home and study at Brandeis University because she saw more opportunities in America. Her efforts paid off because after graduation, she received an offer from J.P. Morgan, and was promoted when there was a surprising opening in the fixed income department. At the time, this field was very small and Marcelli knew next to nothing. Tackling that challenge by speaking with other employees in the industry, she empowered herself to lead this department - and managed to start a family in the process. With such an inspirational speech. Solita Marcelli provided a great start to the USWIB conference. (Continued on page 7)
