ISE Diversity & Inclusion Special Interest Group

Within this 3-hour session we have covered some of the hottest issues in the student recruitment industry with insight into the latest trends in Diversity.



> 9:00 Welcome from the ISE and Dr. Peter Bonfield, VC, University of Westminster

> 9:15 Recruiting for potential in investment management

Jenny Barber, Director of Careers and Talent, and Claire Flannery, Careers and Talent Specialist, Investment20/20

Investment20/20 was the brainchild of Andrew Formica (Former CEO Janus Henderson Investors, now CEO Jupiter Asset Management) and Nichola Pease (Former CEO – JO Hambro), who were driven by the mission to bring more diverse talent into all aspects of investment management. Six years later, over 1300 young people – school leavers and graduates – have been able to start their career in the investment management sector through the Investment20/20 12 month trainee programme. Building diversity in the investment management sector through an early careers strategy, Investment20/20 is seen as the industry careers service. During the session, they shared the evidence of how the sector is, through the I2020 Trainee Programme, recruiting for potential, and building pre-trainee opportunities such as the Think Investments programme that support young people without professional networks in developing the skills and experiences to support them through the application process.

> 11:15 Knowledge share session - key issues in diversity and inclusion

- Gender pay gap. How has the requirement to publish your firms gender pay gap been received within your firm? Has it opened up space for you to talk about gender more? If not, is there any way that you could make the most of it?
