An Insider's view of Clear Street

What are some social events your company does?

We recently started the Women's Club of Clear Street. Once a month we get together and provide a time for the women and allies of our company to connect and engage in meaningful discussion. We're really trying to create a support network for the current and future women of Clear Street.
