Harrison-Rush Group Teams with Project Eve to Advance Women in Financial Services
New York, NY October 1, 2018 – Leading an effort to bring more female candidates to the attention of financial services firms, the notable executive search firm Harrison-Rush Group, has partnered with Project Eve, a global community dedicated to helping women navigate their careers. The partnership brings a series of initiatives to boost diversity candidates in financial services.
According to the 2017 World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report, “Female talent remains one of the most underutilized business resources.” In some industries, like finance, this is especially clear. In finance, as career level rises, female representation declines. Although 46 percent of financial services employees are women, at the executive level, it’s only 15 percent.
“As a former investment banker, I fully appreciate the need for more women in financial services” says Project Eve CEO Meridith Dennes “Promoting women into senior roles is not simply ticking a diversity box, but also important for the long-term health and success of the business.”
“For more than ten years, Harrison Rush has remained committed to recruiting the best talent in the industry and embracing the diversity of these candidates” says Tom Ragland, CEO of Harrison Rush. “We are excited about the opportunity to work with our clients in the finance industry to effect change and increase the total number of female financial services professionals.”
