CHICAGO — When Seerat Kaler sees a need, she doesn’t stop until there’s progress. As a sophomore at DePaul University, she used an internship lunch-and-learn at the banking and financial services firm CIBC U.S. to present about her Sikh culture and religion. Two years later, after noticing a lack of opportunities for women in finance, she co-founded the DePaul Females in Finance Initiative, which grew from eight members to 60 and built an endowment in just a few months.
