We Can Be 2024 Introductory Morning

We Can Be is a unique programme, designed to help young women in and around London learn about careers in the City of London while developing key career ready skills that they can start using straight away. 

Through exposure to and collaboration with participating City businesses, We Can Be is an opportunity for young women to realise and refine the skills that they already have, build their confidence, and learn how those skills transfer into the City.

In its 7th year, We Can Be is a fantastic opportunity for you to showcase the broad range of roles and industries the City of London has to offer and the opportunities available to the young women who join us for the day.  You’ll also have the chance to create a lasting impact on their career readiness journey through longer term engagement.

The 2023 student feedback showed just how valuable the event is:
