The meager results inspired an innovative program and step towards progress. Shannon O’Mara, UWIN founder and Associate Director of Credit Research, designed a comprehensive mentorship and internship program at Loomis Sayles that has successfully partnered with 129 students over the last five years. We welcome another 39 students for the 2020-2021 school year from 13 Boston area colleges and universities.The UWIN program offers school year mentorship and internship opportunities to female undergraduates in their sophomore and junior years that are studying business, finance, accounting, mathematics or economics with an interest in financial markets.
