DASNY Public Finance Diversity Fellowship

Experience | Advancement | Inspiration

"At DASNY, we are at the forefront of making the business case for diversity, and we are committed to creating opportunity. Inclusion is at the core of what we do – it is more than just checking boxes – it is about building resilient and sustainable communities that can adapt and compete. New York State is counting on us to deliver, and together we will lead the way.”

Gerrard P. Bushell, Ph.D.

President & CEO

Diversity is one of New York’s greatest assets. As diversity increases and our workforce becomes more inclusive, improvements in decision-making, creativity, innovation ultimately follow. It is with this in mind that DASNY has established the Public Finance Diversity Fellowship. 

The Fellowship’s Mission

The mission of the fellowship is to build a financial services industry that better reflects the people it serves, and to create and strengthen opportunities to advance diversity and inclusion within the workforce. This consists of increasing the number of individuals from underrepresented groups – including groups based on race, ethnicity, geographic location, gender, disability status, and sexual orientation – who have been historically underrepresented in the financial services industry. The program provides students with the experience and resources necessary to pursue a career as senior-level managers within the finance industry. DASNY is one of the top municipal bond issuers in the country, with nearly 75 years of experience in the public finance arena. The fellowship can provide valuable hands-on experience. The chance to learn from DASNY’s knowledgeable industry professionals and one of DASNY’s valued and respected investment bank partners is a tremendous opportunity.
