GIC is proud to partner with Girls Who Invest (GWI), 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, mentoring, internships, and curating a supportive, motivated community to fulfil their vision of seeing 30% of the world’s investable capital managed by women by 2030.
At GIC, we recognise, respect and take pride in the multiple diversity dimensions an individual can bring to the workplace – inclusive of gender, ethnicity, nationality, education, industry and physical abilities.
GIC Enable Programme (GEP)
GIC launched the GEP as a dedicated programme providing internships to students with disabilities with potential for full-time conversion. We hope that through the work experience gained during their time with us, these students gain the confidence, practical knowledge and industry networks that will enhance their future employability. GIC has partnered with SG Enable, 10000 Able Interns and Leonard Cheshire’s Change 100 internship. Since 2019, we have welcomed over 10 interns joining various teams across the investment and business departments in Singapore and London.
In 2022, GIC and Yayasan MENDAKI have entered into a partnership to establish the “GIC-MENDAKI Scholarship” for Singaporean Malay/Muslim students who are keen to pursue a career in the finance industry.
GIC is a proud affiliate member of City Hive and sponsor of the City Hive Cross-Company Mentoring Scheme in association with #TalkAboutBlack and the Race and Ethnicity Workstream of The Diversity Project. Never has there been a more meaningful time to support and help diverse talent progress in investment management, and we are delighted to be involved in the City Hive programme to do just that.
10,000 Black Interns
Our London office teamed up with 10,000 Black Interns to provide internships to Black students whilst at university. 10,000 Black Interns aims to transform the horizons and prospects of young Black people in the United Kingdom by offering paid work experience across a wide range of industries, as well as world-class training and development.
GIC is a partner of the Diversity Project to champion a truly diverse and inclusive UK investment industry with the right talent to deliver the best possible financial outcomes for our clients, to reflect the society we serve and ultimately make more sustainable investments.
