Johanna Rossi is a senior hedge fund trader.
She’s one of the top women on Wall Street. And she’s doing all she can to change that.
Not that she wants to lose her position. She just wants other women to join her.
In her spare time, the Westporter is a leader of Securities Traders Association of New York — Women in Finance.
Last year, Johanna asked the Durst Organization to shine a light on International Women’s Day. The real estate giant quickly agreed to light One World Trade Center purple.
This year — thanks again to Johanna — Durst is adding purple lights to One Bryant Park and nearby 4 Times Square.
In addition, Durst is allowing STANY-WIF to use the coveted Spire app. It allows users to change the color of spires from their cellphones.
The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day is #PressForProgress. The goal is to “motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.”
It’s something Johanna Rossi has been doing for years.
