Eileen Jurczak

Founder & Chair, Bay Street Deconstructed

Eileen Jurczak is the Founder and Chair of Bay Street Deconstructed, a non-profit organization that is defining the future by opening the exclusive doors to financial services for girls from different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. The program structure, boasting a curriculum informed by a team of professionals with a broad base of skills and experience in both education and industry, is designed to address gaps in current high school courses and existing industry initiatives with respect to financial services career education. With a background in Sales & Trading, Asset Management, Wealth Management, and Equity Research, as well as her current position as Director on the Trading Floor with BMO Capital Markets, few can match Jurczak’s klout: by December 2017, Eileen had used her influence to secure close to $200,000 of initial funding from nine prestigious financial firms, including BMO, CIBC, and Scotiabank. While formally established in 2015, November 2017 marked the start of Bay Street Deconstructed’s first year of workshops and, as a result of Jurczak’s tireless efforts and ability to inspire others, over the past 10 months the program has achieved remarkable success: to date, roughly 4,000 Grade 10 students across the GTA have now received necessary financial services awareness education through the program, and another 9,000 Grade 10 students across Canada are lined up to attend workshops starting in September 2018 as part of the organization’s national launch.
