Later that evening, Antoinette will be participating in a screening of the film, Girl Rising, for which she is a Global Ambassador. The film, created by The Documentary Group, shares the story of nine young women around the world who have undertaken risks, sacrifices, and serious dangers to receive an education. Their stories are ones of hope and struggle, as well as a constant reminder of the genuine tenacity of the human spirit and the role it plays in the success of our world. As an early sponsor of the film and an institution vested in human dignity, TD Ameritrade is thrilled to offer associates the opportunity to share in the dynamic journey of these young women and other individuals through community support.“Giving people opportunities to make a difference and be a part of something larger than their everyday jobs has a big impact on the individual employee experience and ultimately on society as a whole,” said Katrina Becker, managing director of communications and public affairs for TD Ameritrade. “Our people have a passion for helping others, and TD Ameritrade’s alliance with Azure Antoinette not only supports our corporate mission, but empowers employees to be leaders and make a difference in communities outside of the office that matter to them,” continued Becker.
