Future Leaders

You are a Future Leader.

LGBT in Capital Markets is committed to developing LGBT talent, and Future Leaders is one of the many ways we’re investing in that commitment. Future Leaders, will allow students to be paired with LGBT mentors from the capital markets industry who will offer career guidance. Mentors will also offer encouragement and empowerment, giving students the confidence to achieve their full potential.

Why this program?

Career identity development and sexual identity development occur during the same period in a young person’s life. Gender and sexual identity status can impact an individual’s perception of their own skills and intelligence, resulting in self-imposed limitations for their future careers. Ultimately, career paths develop differently for LGBT students than for their heterosexual counterparts.

LGBT in Capital Markets aims to change this by holding workshops and mentorship sessions with LGBT high school students, connecting them with professionals from the capital markets industry. Students will be provided with valuable professional relationships early in their career and identity development. These workshops will give students the opportunity to learn about education and career paths available to them within the capital markets industry.

Who benefits?
