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 our Investing in the Next Generation Initiative, 100 Women in Finance collaborates with industry firms, nonprofit partners, and colleges and universities using a three-pronged approach:

Introduce

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

Educate

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

Connect

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

“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

Our Programs

Investing in the Next Generation Initiative programs serve students at all phases of their college journey. Programs are intended to be beneficial both to students with a great deal of support, as well as for those who may find themselves lacking guidance from their college or home communities.

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

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.

LaunchMe Program

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.

GirlForce 100

A strategic community partnership between 100 Women in Finance and the Cayman Islands Ministry of Education which provides support, educational guidance and opportunity to young women aged 13-25 years old, attending local educational institutions in the Cayman Islands.
