ATHENS — Middleport resident and Ohio University sophomore Haiden N. English recently attended the KeyBank Conference for Women in Corporate and Investment Banking, held in Cleveland, Ohio.
English, a Finance and Entrepreneurship major at Ohio University’s College of Business, was selected as one of only 19 college and university women from across the nation to attend the conference at KeyBank headquarters April 8 through 10. Besides Ohio University, institutions represented included the University of Texas at Austin, the Ohio State University, the University of Cincinnati, Oregon State University, the University of Pennsylvania, Washington University, Hobart & William Smith Colleges, Claremont McKenna College, the University of Pittsburgh, the University of North Carolina, the University of Chicago, and Syracuse University.
Conference attendees participated in career opportunity, leadership, and networking panels, and were separated into teams to research, organize and present a stock pitch as part of an end-of-conference competition. English’s team won the competition and each member was awarded a $1,000 scholarship.
Of the conference, English said, “it was a wonderful professional learning experience and inspiring for young women like myself. Being selected to participate in such a prestigious conference then winning the competition phase was an amazing feeling, and I’m proud I was able to represent my college and hometown at the Cleveland conference.”
