Support us

There are a number of ways firms can support Future Asset from financial sponsorship to enabling staff to volunteer their time and expertise as Ambassadors.

Future Asset can provide industry-wide engagement with schools, educators and most importantly, pupils. Our aim is to raise girls’ awareness of the investment sector, spark their interest in a financial career and thereby widen the industry’s talent pool.

Partnership with Future Asset enables companies to demonstrate a clear commitment to promoting and improving gender diversity in the long-term. Investing in girls, giving them the information and opportunity to explore future careers, is a long-term strategic approach.

Volunteering with Future Asset can give staff valuable development opportunities whilst building links between firms and the wider community.

If you would like to get involved, or to discuss your involvement in Future Asset, we would be delighted to speak to you! Contact our Programme Manager at Helen@futureasset.org.uk

Sponsorship

Financial support is vital to enable us to deliver a sustainable programme, giving girls a deeper understanding of investment and extending our reach to as many schools throughout Scotland as possible. 

By giving financial sponsorship, over a few years or as a single donation, firms can help us to build a pathway of information and opportunities for girls, and practically demonstrate their commitment to addressing the gender imbalance in the investment industry.

Volunteering

To use a cliché, we want girls to see it so they can be it. A study with 7 to 11-year olds has shown that even at that young age career aspirations are shaped by social background and gender stereotypes. We want to put girls in touch with real life professionals to widen their horizons and their career possibilities.

As with many firms and charities, our 2020 plans were disrupted due to Covid-19 and we have had to postpone all our planned roadshows and events until next year. However, whilst we cannot see them in person, girls need help and advice more than ever.  We have been busy planning what we can do online and virtually and have lots of opportunities for you to help us reach out to the girls. If you are interested in finding out how you can volunteer and become a Future Asset Ambassador, please get in touch.

Work Experience

As face to face work experience is not possible just now, we are working with firms to develop alternatives such as online career seminars, where girls can speak to professionals and find out what they do. We are also looking at virtual work experience opportunities with firms. Please get in touch if this is something your firm would like to get involved with.
