Practical knowledge. Real experience.

First launched in India in the summer of 2018, the CFA Institute Young Women in Investment Program is an initiative to create awareness about, instill interest in and provide a route of entry for women into the investment management industry.

CFA Institute has long championed inclusion and diversity efforts in the investment management industry. By offering a training program to young women who may not have previously considered a career in our industry, this program aims to not only increase the talent pool of women but also increase diversity of thought by attracting those without traditional finance backgrounds.

Following successful initiatives in India and Brazil, the Qatar program was launched in 2021.
