This month, Blackstone hosted the 2015 Future Women Leader’s Program for undergraduate women at our New York and London offices. This marks the 3rd class of Future Women Leaders in New York and the inaugural class in London. The program is designed to give sophomore women early exposure to finance and business through interactive information seminars, networking opportunities, and skill-building sessions.
In London, fifteen women came from eight universities and six countries across Europe for the day and a half day program. In New York, thirty women attended from fifteen universities across the country. The participants attended panels with professionals from across the firm, networked, and attending seminars introducing the knowledge, training, and skills necessary for a well-guided career path in finance.
