Investing in the Next Generation aims to reach, inspire, and support young women at high school, university, and business school levels who will become a talent pipeline for the future leadership of the industry.

Through a number of ongoing initiatives, we encourage pre-career women to look more favorably at a career in finance and investments; create educational opportunities and access points to support young women who want to join the industry; and facilitate an ongoing peer network for young women in the industry. Our approach is to


Demystify the world of finance and investing, rendering it more appealing and accessible to young women of diverse backgrounds


Increase young womens’ awareness of the finance industry’s full career spectrum via partnership with grassroots organizations that directly deliver critical STEM and finance education


Provide young women with relevant and relatable finance industry role models and mentors, while opening the doors to career opportunities

100 Women Inspiring Girls

100 Women Impact Collective – an initiative we have started since 2019 in advancing 100 Women in Finance’s guiding Vision for 30×40, in which women will perform 30% of investment team and executive roles, globally, by 2040. To realize our vision, we must inspire far larger numbers of young women toward careers in investing, and to create an inclusive industry that is worthy of their choice.

In 2020 working in collaboration with our partnering organizations, 100 Women in Finance supported over hundred of girls in Hong Kong to have access to finance and investment opportunities. To bring these girls closer to the industry, we are presenting 100 Women Inspiring Girls by having our 100 Women in Finance talk to the teenage girls.
