General Atlantic

Girls Who Invest Ambassadors

Challenge

We recognize that recruiting a diverse workforce is not only essential to supporting our diverse communities but is key to finding differentiated opportunities for our investors and portfolio companies. In order to effectively drive a robust diversity recruiting strategy, there is a need to identify high potential individuals early on in their professional lives.

Actions

General Atlantic is partnering with Girls Who Invest (GWI) to become a 2017 GWI Ambassador. GWI is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing the number of women in portfolio management and executive leadership in the asset management industry. GWI focuses on education, industry outreach, accessibility and career placement to inspire and support young women to become tomorrow's leading investors.

Outcomes

As an Ambassador, GA will help mentor and coach several GWI scholars over the course of their 2017 Summer Intensive Program. Beyond playing a mentorship role for these female candidates, we plan to create a pipeline of talent into GA’s annual summer intern program and ultimately full-time Analyst program from the GWI candidate pool.
