Wednesday webinar at one: Girls making big GAINs in investment with inclusion

Wednesday 01 December 2021 | 13:00 - 13:40 | Webinar

CFA UK's Inclusion & Diversity Committee would like to invite you to be part of the inclusion discussion – join us to hear from the co-founders of GAIN (Girls Are investors) Tilly Franklin and Charlotte Yonge, CFA as they share their career journeys, perceptions of the industry and the importance of positive role modelling. They will also demonstrate ways you can be an industry inclusion champion and what you can do to make a difference every day.

Developing an inclusive mindset requires effort from everyone, and it is time to move away from awareness towards action. Embedding a culture of inclusion can be done at all levels and asking the right questions to help you succeed is part of the journey. To help you learn more about the part you can play, Tilly and Charlotte will share real world case scenarios of the work they have done and the positive impact it has made on promoting investment management as an inclusive sector.

Where recordings are made, these are a member benefit that are accessed through the member-only platform, CFA UK Discover.
