Industry superannuation fund HESTA has partnered with social enterprise Girls of Impact to encourage more women to consider financial services careers.
The partnership would highlight career opportunities and pathways in financial services where women were historically underrepresented such as risk and compliance, digital and technology, and investments.
HESTA chief experience officer, Lisa Samuels, said: “Financial services can offer a wonderfully rewarding career. We want to share the experiences and cutting-edge work our people are doing every day that simply wouldn’t be available in other industries”.
Girls of Impact chief executive, Kate Bushell, said the partnership would help build talent pipelines and that the enterprise wanted more women in careers and industries such as funds management and super.
“This collaboration with HESTA is so crucial because we need more women in decision-making roles, especially in financial services, where investment decisions can impact people’s financial futures and the Australian economy,” she said.
