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.

Modern Muse program:
A week in the life at Credit Suisse

Invitation

Dear All,

We to inform you of the next ‘Modern Muse: A Week in the life of Credit Suisse’ program, which is an interactive, informative and fun week that will run from 15 – 19 July, 2019. The Modern Muse program is run in partnership with Credit Suisse’s Europe, Middle East and Africa Women’s Network and the IT Women’s Council.

The Credit Suisse Modern Muse program is designed to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs and future business leaders. It informs and motivates young women, girls, and those identifying as female, by introducing them to the wide range of career opportunities available within banking.

This particular opportunity is best suited for students aged between 16 and 18 years old who are considering further and higher education choices, as participation in the program offers a broad insight into the finance world, which will support them in their next phase of decision making in their education and future career.

The week will be a mixture of interactive sessions including a trading game, the opportunity to develop soft skills and the chance to hear from current graduates. A full agenda will be provided upon confirming successful placement.

Places on this program are limited due to popularity and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and is open to many of our school and charity partnerships.

If you would like to nominate yourself, please email;

Did you see the news yesterday that scientists had been able to take a picture of a black hole for the first time. There was a young woman who created the software that allowed the image to be captured - Katie Bouman. You can read about here at this link :

Hello,

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

Kind regards,
Saoirse

Modernmuse Hi Saoirse you should take a look at Katie's interview she gives a few tips about how to get started. https://www.modernmuse.org/2019/03/04/muse-interview-pilot/
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.

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.

Modernmuse PwC advised that a lot of their summer work experience programmes; internships and digital insight weeks start their applications open in September so may be full now but worth a look. https://www.pwc.co.uk/careers/school-jobs.html There are also some events if none of the programmes suit: There is a schools open evening: http://www.careersschools.pwc.co.uk/Events/ShowEvent/London-Schools-Career-Open-Day/895872

The Credit Suisse Modern Muse program – Panel Event

The Modern Muse program inspires, informs and motivates young women and girls, introducing them to the wide range of career opportunities available within banking.

To support this, on the 29 March 2019 and as part of our International Women’s Day focus ‘Balance for Better’, we are holding a panel event to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs and future business leaders for girls who are aged between 15 – 18 (year’s 10 - 13 at school).

Within the session which will run from 2pm – 4 pm, the girls will be inspired by a panel of Credit Suisse employees who will talk about their backgrounds, their career paths and their role models.

It will give the girls an opportunity to learn about what it’s like to work in a global investment bank with offices all over the world, and find out more about the wide range of different jobs available.

The event also provides the opportunity for the girls to network with a variety of Credit Suisse employees and ask questions to support their current and future education and career decisions.

If you are interested in attending this event, you can register by sending an email, with your name, the name of your school, your year and why you are interested in attending to: modernmuse.cs@credit-suisse.com by 20 March.
