Virtus supports the Boys & Girls Club’s Black History Quiz Bowl
Virtus employees recently volunteered to be judges for the Boys & Girls Club of Hartford’s (BGCH) Black History Quiz Bowl.
More than 20 BGCH members participated in the Quiz Bowl, which focused on expanding cultural knowledge of African American history within American culture and supporting history curriculums provided by the schools that Boys & Girls Club members attend.
The Jeopardy style competition was a traditional round-robin style among five Hartford BGCH clubs with the Trinity College BGCH team taking first place. Some topics included African Americans in government, the civil rights movement, Connecticut figures, inventors, media worthy, and quotes.
The Quiz Bowl was part of our ongoing support for the Boys & Girls Club of Hartford, in conjunction with Virtus’ partnership with the Equity Collective, a diversity-driven collaboration between 27 wealth and asset management firms dedicated to educating, empowering, and developing the next generation of diverse leaders in the finance industry.
