MEET ONE OF OUR CANDIDATES:
Due to graduate in 2022, Janete completed a 2021 Summer Internship with Royal London.
She says, "Being part of the HerCapital program in 2020 was an enriching experience. Through the program, I got more insight into a number of sectors and I was able to improve skills such as communication, teamwork, and leadership through it’s weekly challenges and ongoing activities. I am still in touch with the other HerCapital associates, and we share opportunities with each other. The connections I made during the program helped me secure a summer internship and get experience in a new field. I would definitely recommend it to everyone."
Through this programme I developed my soft skills, extended my network, and learnt about the fundamentals of becoming a female leader of tomorrow.
