At our recent Dive In 2017 event in India, Sian Fisher, CEO announced a sponsorship programme for two young girls from underprivileged backgrounds for the CII ACII qualification.
Our ambition is to attract talent from a wider pool to join our profession and one way is to inspire, engage and involve young girls by empowering them to take on roles and opportunities which they otherwise would never had the chance to do.
Our aspiration is to see them take on roles which they find fulfilling and help them develop and grow through their learning.
The initiative will commence in 2018 and applications will be invited from all the CII partners in India. Two candidates will be chosen for the sponsorship programme, providing local students with an exclusive opportunity to the international qualifications.
