Katharine Earhart

Shakespeare was my passion at University of California, Los Angeles. Before I set out to become a literature professor, my mentors encouraged me to join the workforce to gain experience. That is when I landed at Charles Schwab, where I found a new passion for educating people about investments, the stock market and financial planning. I followed that career trajectory for 25+ years, working for mPower Advisors (early robo advisory firm for 401k participants), Barclays Global Investors and iShares / BlackRock. My passion now continues through founding Fairlight where I help nonprofits, foundations and endowments invest to achieve their mission.
