CFA Society South Africa Day of the Girl 

Empowered adolescent girls of today are tomorrow's leaders


Background

On December 19, 2011, United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution 66/170 to declare October 11 as the International Day of the Girl Child, to recognize girls' rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world. The International Day of the Girl Child focuses attention on the need to address the challenges girls face and to promote girls' empowerment and the fulfilment of their human rights. 

 

 CFA Society South Africa Day of the Girl

The objective of the initiative is to provide adolescent girls valuable exposure to the financial industry, and specifically the investments industry, giving participants a realistic view of a different roles and opportunities within the industry. We believe the opportunity for young girl learners to visit corporate establishments will have a profound impact on their ability to visualise investments as a career.

This is just the beginning and with the passion and dedication of the Women in Investment Management and Diversity Committee, schools and employers, we can work together and embark on sustainable projects to address and change the under representation of women in the investment industry. 


We have produced a short Day of the Girl spotlight interview with Asset Tv, providing more information about the Programme to view and to share.
