In celebration of International Women’s Day Fidelity Investments held a Careers for Girls event for 35 students at their offices in Citywest Business Campus.
Students from Our Lady of Mercy College, Beaumont participated in the event in which Fidelity volunteers gave insight into a range of exciting career opportunities through a series of presentations and interactive workshops. During the half day event, students were introduced to a variety of female role models working in both technology and business operations in Fidelity. Students had the opportunity to sit down with these women and ask them questions about their education, career paths and what a day in their job role would look like. Through this experience students learned about the wide range of career options available to them.
Fidelity Investments Ireland recently won the inaugural Women in Technology award from Technology Ireland in recognition of their support to women in technology. Women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) is a key focus of Fidelity’s CSR initiatives and the company works closely with JAI to help inspire future generations to consider careers in STEM.
Thank you to all volunteers who shared their time, expertise and enthusiasm with the students for this powerfully influential event.
