Student Connect is LGBTCM’s university program which provides our student members an opportunity to learn about our corporate partners, develop an understanding of careers and career paths in the capital markets, and allows students to meet LGBT+ talent that work in the industry.
LGBTCM is committed to developing and advancing LGBT+ students in the capital markets. We believe working with students at the earliest stages of their education and careers sets the stage for empowerment and success, and improves the diversity and overall quality of talent in our industry for the long-term. Student Connect allows us to work with industry partners to bring LGBT+ students closer to the industry in a supportive and inclusive way.
What is a Student Connect event?
Student Connect events are intimate and interactive recruitment, networking, and/or career exploration events with our corporate partners. Our partner firms host Student Connect events throughout the school year. Student Connect events may consist of:
- A networking reception with recruiters, hiring managers, and senior leaders
- A tour of a trading floor or other work facilities
- A shadowing opportunity to allow members to see what careers in the industry entail
- A panel or workshop with LGBT+ talent who work with our partner
LGBT+ students who are members of LGBT in Capital Markets can apply to attend our events.
