Young Women into Finance
The Young Women Into Finance Scholarship Program is One Search’s own not-for-profit social enterprise, established in 2018 to try and persuade more young women to look at Infrastructure Finance and Investment as a future career path.
Like everyone else, we had been talking about gender imbalance in our industry for years, but it wasn’t getting any better. We decided it was time to try and do something to try and move the needle in some small way.
If things are going to change, it won’t be through talk. It will be through influencing the makeup of the candidate pool at entry level. In 2018, graduates starting careers in Infrastructure & Energy finance in London were 18% female. In 2019, that went up to 20%. We have a long way to go, to get to 50%.
