Welcome to the High Water Women On-line Community
High Water Women is deeply saddened by the passing of Muriel Siebert. Her passion for teaching financial literacy to teens inspired the Muriel Siebert High Water Women Campaign for Financial Literacy that reaches more than 1500 low-income teens in NYC every year. Muriel was a wonderful mentor and supporter of the program and a great inspiration to us all.
The High Water Women Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization founded in 2005 by senior women in the Hedge Fund Industry.
Our Mission is to empower women and youth in need by creating powerful volunteer opportunities that leverage the talents and aspirations of professional women.
