The Credit Suisse Modern Muse program, in parthership with the Credit Suisse European Womens Network and IT womens Champions provided a week long work experience from 15th to 19th Jul. The event was extended to 30 girls both internal and external candidates from diverse backgrounds and ages ranging from 15 to 17. The girls were invited into the Credit Suisse office to obtain a more detailed understanding of what a career in a financial institution would actually consist of.
The schedule included insights into the roles supporting the life cycle of a trade, the extensive diversity and inclusion network's available, campus recruitment, Donna presenting more about the Modern Muse program, as well as 'on the job' activities within technology and more.
The students were tasked with presenting, in teams, what they had learnt during the week in the large auditorium, a daunting task even for the seasoned presenter. The presentations were outstanding, the students were confident, articulate and creative which demonstrated not only the retention of what they had leant but also their clear understanding.
The students also actively embraced the concept and importance of networking, a theme which persisted throughout the week.
The success of the event was attributed to over 40 Credit Suisse Volunteers who gave up their time in support of encouraging, inspiring and motivating the next generation female business leaders, entrepeneurs and FTSE 100 CEOs.
Thanks to all of the volunteers involved.
And a huge thanks to all of the students who (See more)put in so much into this event and got so much out. Well done

I'm looking forward to hearing from young people who are trying to make sense of the choices they have. Contact me to talk about a career in finance, life in a large corporate organisation or simply the skills that employers want to see.

I’m 15 and I was looking for ways that I could get into becoming a pilot as I have no idea where to even start. I’ve always wanted to be a pilot and have done some research but it’s still confusing me would you be able to explain to me where to start
The Credit Suisse Modern Muse program held an inspirational panel event on 29 March as part of the International Women’s Day ‘Balance for better’ theme. The internal panel consisted of four motivational women sharing their diverse life and career journeys. Over 40 girls attended from a variety of schools from in and around London to hear some fantastic tips about different routes to success, hurdles the panellists have overcome during their work life and striving to be the best you can be by not selling yourself short.
Thank you to all the amazing girls and schools who attended and participated in the day.
On Sunday 31st March it is Transgender Day of Visibility, big shout out to all, #TransDayOfVisibility we stand in solidarity #WithTheT and will continue to do so on this day and every day in the coming months and years.
So I haven't posted on here in such a long time as I am now working for Britvic as the Senior Diversity & Inclusion Manager so have been very busy settling in. Attached are a few photos from a fantastic event I attended on behalf of Britvic which was Diversity in Grocery, I got to hear from some very inspirational speakers including Dame Karen Brady.
