This year we’re hosting three events that will help guide you through how the financial services industry operates and the opportunities it can provide you. These events will focus on widening participation for:

  • Female students;
  • Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority (BAME) students; and
  • Mature students.
Our REACH events will take place near our University campus at Peninsular House, London

Our next event

REACH: Supporting Diversity in Banking and Finance will take place on Friday 22 February 2019 and will be looking at widening participation for BAME students within the finance sector.

During the day you will be able to ask our guest speakers questions about their background and experience how that affected their careers. There will be an opportunity to network with attendees and speakers.

We encourage students from a BAME background to attend this event. You will receive a confirmation email once you have registered your attendance.
