Minding the gap

As part of its commitment to a build a more diverse workplace and address a gender gap within key sectors of the financial services industry, Fidelity has launched its Summit for Young Women, a day-long event designed to open students’ minds to the wide range of career opportunities that exist within financial services, years before they are ready to begin their professional lives.

Over the course of the Summit, attendees participate in discussions, engage in learning exercises, and collaborate with Fidelity coaches to brainstorm solutions to real challenges they’ve identified. The program was initially piloted with the daughters of many Fidelity associates in New England and Texas and has since scaled to include high school-aged girls from communities in the greater Boston area. To date, nearly 300 young women have participated in the program, and the company expects that to more than double next year.

While the Summit is a one-time experience, it’s the first touchpoint within an eight-year program that begins when a young woman is in high school and continues through the time she graduates from college. Throughout, participants have opportunities to stay connected with Fidelity and one another in a number of ways as they shape their futures, Fidelity’s workforce, and the world in which we live.
