With 30+ companies taking part, the day gives the opportunity for both young women (aged 15 - 18) and businesses to collaborate, and for the City to inspire the young women by highlighting the key skills they need for their future workforce.
This day will let young women know that the doors to the City are open to them and that they can succeed in a sector that many would never have previously considered.
The programme for the day is here.
64% of 17 - 21 year old females believe that employers prefer to employ men over women. (Girls’ Attitude Survey 2016)
The percentage of job vacancies due to skills shortages increased in financial services from 11% to 21% in just two years. (City of London Corporation)
The message from the day will reverberate around the UK and beyond, through social media and the Girlguiding’s fantastic reach of 400,000 girls and young women across a range of backgrounds, opening a new pipeline of future talent and skills to the City and business.
