After a call to action by the Executive Vice President of Financial Markets at National Bank of Canada, the “Women in Financial Markets Scholarship Program” was developed to increase the number of women in Capital Markets. The scholarship program, which is unique to financial markets, targets competitive, innovative, and ambitious women with solid analytical skills who are enrolling in a full-time post-graduate program in any field related to finance. It was conceptualized as a way to formally mentor women during their studies and help women advance in the Capital Markets industry.
An excerpt from this practice was published in 2012 in Women and Men in Canadian Capital Markets: An Action Plan for Gender Diversity.
