REACH: Empowering Women in Banking & Finance

Friday 13 July 2018

Our next Reach event has a direct focus on inspiring young female students to consider banking and finance not only as a subject at university but as a career.

The sector is in need of diversity so we want to encourage young women to find out more about the opportunities available to them and to give you the confidence to get ahead in a male dominated industry.

This event will take place at Peninsular House, London.

Why do it?

Reach will give you an insight into the world of banking & finance whilst highlighting some of the key issues the industry is facing surrounding diversity. You will hear from a range of industry speakers on their career journeys and will have a chance to question our panel.  You will discover some of the key skills needed to help you succeed in the banking & finance industry and will also have the opportunity to find out more about our specialised degree programmes.
