Stacey Cunningham became the first female president of the New York Stock Exchange in its 226-year history.

(Of course we Alpha Rising are screaming: "What took so long?")

And as the 67th president, she is on a mission to attract new talent to Wall Street. 

"The capital markets create a framework so that entrepreneurs can access capital and make their products and services available to the masses.  That's a social good," she said in a recent Alpha Rising interview.

Sure is.  And we on Wall Street all need to help tell that story.  

We at #AlphaRising are for you Stacey.  Go get 'em!
