Due to essential maintenance, our websites will be unavailable on Friday 3rd September, from 6pm - 7pm.
Through REACH we support the progression of under-represented groups in the banking and finance industries. We invite you to join the conversation, listen to REACH champions working in the industry, hear their stories and how we can encourage change and diversity together.
Our REACH events are currently being held online on Zoom. We would love to welcome you to our London campus but we have decided this is the best option to keep our participants and guest speakers as safe as possible during this unprecedented time. If you have any questions, think you will have issues accessing this event online or want to give us some feedback on session being on campus or virtual please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Listen to a podcast from our last REACH event featuring Jagdeep Rai, the Regional Director at HSBC, discussing career progression and diversity in Financial Services.
Introduction and welcome
Our Managing Director Hema Tank will welcome you to our REACH event
"I took a year out from working to go travelling, but now it’s time to get back into the working world. I actually graduated in Biochemistry but now I’m considering a career in banking and finance. I initially enrolled in the Diploma in Financial Advice at The London Institute of Banking & Finance, but I’m debating whether that is the correct step. So, I came to REACH to see what other pathways are available to me."
- Thurkka, REACH: Mature learners
"My favourite part was the industry panel - all of the speakers were so inspiring! Hearing from them made me feel confident about my choice to study banking because we actually found out what it's like to work and grow in the sector."
- Ayesha, REACH: Supporting ethnic diversity
"I always thought of bankers, especially senior ones, as older men! But, seeing so many women that are enjoying successful careers in the industry makes me more determined to study towards my own future in financial services."
- Katie, REACH: Empowering women
