Unique diversity program teaches female students all about investment banking

For over seven years now, Deutsche Bank has been providing female students from Australian universities with a unique first-hand opportunity to learn about a career in investment banking through its Aspiring Talent Program.

Anthony Miller, Chief Executive Officer for Australia & New Zealand, said: We’re really proud of our Aspiring Talent Program. It was introduced in 2011 to provide female students in their penultimate year of university insights into what it’s like to work in an investment bank. We also wanted to bring more diversity to our business given that females in senior roles remain under-represented in financial services.” 

Deutsche Bank is the only investment bank in Australia to offer a program of this kind. This year, over 100 applications were received and 13 places were offered. Over the next few months, and while studying, the successful 13 candidates will attend five sessions of presentations, workshops and mentoring at our Sydney offices.

“We hope that at the end of the program, the participants will decide that banking is the right career for them and will consider Deutsche Bank as a future employer,” said Anthony. 

So far, the program has provided to be a successful pipeline to the bank’s internship and graduate programs. 12 current employees were previous participants including Alexandra Feetham who is an Associate in Global Capital Markets.

Alexandra said: “The Aspiring Talent Program provided an invaluable opportunity to meet the people of Deutsche Bank. Through these interactions I got a feel not just for banking, but for the culture of this firm, and realised the people here were who I wanted to work with.”
