Western launches Women in Asset Management program

November 25, 2021
Western University’s Ivey Business School has launched a new program that will help prepare women to pursue careers in asset management. The Women in Asset Management (WAM) program was developed with second-year undergraduate students who identify as women in mind, and aims to increase the number of women in the asset management industry. The program includes four weeks of in-class training and a ten-week internship at an asset management firm. “The program is meant to attract women to asset management,” said Ivey finance professor and program co-director Steve Foerster. “Not only do we want to see more female participation, but we’d like to see women remain in the industry and fill more senior investment decision-making roles.” Western (ON)
