Franklin, Tenn. (Nov. 2, 2020) – HawsGoodwin Wealth, a Nashville area financial planning and investment management firm, announced that Caroline Silen, a junior at Vanderbilt, will spend six weeks interning with the firm as part of Vanderbilt’s Women in Business Program (WiB). “We are thrilled to participate in this inaugural year of the WiB program,” said Caroline Galbraith, CPWA®, CFP®, Partner and Wealth Management Advisor. “At HawsGoodwin, we recognize the importance of mentorship and are committed to increasing diversity and inclusion within the financial services industry, especially given that only 23% of CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals are women. We’re looking forward to having Caroline Silen with us.”


Silen, from Madison New Jersey, is majoring in Human and Organizational Development and minoring in both Business and Medicine Health and Society. She is actively involved in the business fraternity Alpha Kappa Psi and also serves on the client services committee of WiB. “The internship will be a terrific learning experience for me,” said Silen. “I am passionate about pursuing a career in business and look forward to learning more about the opportunities in wealth management.”


“This Internship program is designed to create a community that recognizes the value that women bring to the business world.” said Anna-Vija McClain, Executive in Residence with Women in Business and Founder/CEO of Piccolo Marketing. “There is already a tremendous amount of interest in the program, with only 14% of applicants being accepted. Our goal is not just to match interns and businesses, but to train each side to have the most valuable experience possible, cutting down the time it takes to onboard, train, and establish a digital workflow.”
