“Finance is everywhere. This is an industry with a broad footprint — over 80% of global assets are managed by private firms for pension plans, endowments, foundations — all of whose beneficiaries are everyday people. At the end of the day, finance pervades and improves our livelihoods, making the world a better place.”
Amanda Pullinger, CEO, 100 Women in Finance
Sponsored Student Membership
Thanks to the generosity of our partner firms, we are able to provide all presently enrolled college and university students with free membership to 100 Women in Finance. This grants them access to 100WF’s full range of benefits.
JumpStart Program – Global
JumpStart is a multi-day virtual experience that provides college-age students with an introduction to the financial services industry and the opportunity to meet experienced professionals. Throughout the course of the program, participants receive career guidance, industry information, interviewing and networking tips, and opportunities to interact with professionals, recruiters, and fellow students from around the world.
Creating lasting mentoring and advocacy relationships is the final and critical step to welcoming more young women from diverse backgrounds into the industry. LaunchMe is designed to facilitate such introductions and build relationships between career-ready students and current industry leaders.
Regional programs are produced by local 100WF volunteer teams across target geographies and are open to students living in or traveling to those areas. If you are a 100WF member interested in bringing one of these programs to your city, please contact email@example.com.
GirlForce 100 is a community mentorship programme which pairs professional women with public high school girls who have been identified by educators as having the potential to succeed. This programme empowers local girls to excel in their education and guides their path to the workplace.
JumpStart Program – Regional
To complement JumpStart programming at the global level, we host one-day in-person education events for students in select geographies. Falling under the JumpStart umbrella, these events may include panel discussions, site visits, case competitions, and more!
