UCL Women in Finance
Who are we?
As the largest female-focused society at UCL, the UCL Women in Finance Society aims to educate, equip and empower women by providing them with a platform to achieve their career ambitions in the finance industry.
We educate our members by holding panel discussions and speaker sessions with distinguished members of the industry. We have invited senior women from investment banks, asset managers, consultancies and technology companies to our university to provide a greater insight to their day-to-day lives, as well as the obstacles they have faced being a woman in their respective fields.
What do we do?
We equip our members with CV clinics, interview preparation sessions and other relevant workshops to optimise their chances of succeeding in their career applications. Our sessions are led by relevant experts in the field, such as external organisations, as well as leading firms in the industry.
We empower our members by fostering a network of strong motivated women by hosting networking events on and off campus with our fellow members, women employees of leading firms, as well as our successful alumna.
Connecting women of different backgrounds but similar goals is a mission we prioritise greatly.
Our flagship event – the Share the Vision Conference, collectively meets our three missions. With a star line up of speakers, career workshops, and a networking event, the conference encapsulates our vision and fulfills our purpose. Hosted yearly by a leading firm in the industry, we aim to exceed expectations and create an empowering experience for all our participants.
Why are we here to write?
Through our collaboration with Collective Equity Ownership, we seek to empower women in the entrepreneurial community. Highlighting women-led accomplishments and ventures, we believe in the importance of encouraging women entrepreneurs and providing them a platform to succeed. Our mission is to meet our goals – to educate, equip and empower women, while venturing into entrepreneurship, especially with the help of CEO.
