Bain London is running a scholarship program for exceptional female
students this summer. The aim is to inspire and equip you with practical
leadership and personal impact skills. A group of top candidates will be
invited to participate in a two-day workshop in our office and early Associate
Consultant interviews, after which the scholarship will be awarded. The purpose
is to encourage women to enter a field where women are traditionally
underrepresented.

 

The True North Workshop will provide a unique insight into our industry
and what a career in consulting could offer you. We will create opportunities
for you to learn and practice a number of key skills, including some of the
tools our teams use to crack critical business problems, as well as tips and
tricks for interviews. Taking part in our True North Workshop is an excellent
opportunity to meet a group of high-potential young women from across the UK
& Ireland and to hear about the impact we have here at Bain. We truly
believe our supportive culture can help you achieve your full potential.

 

Penultimate year female students from any degree or discipline of any
nationality studying at any UK or Irish university are eligible.

 

Submit your application by 11th April 2019 here https://www.bain.com/scholarship?utm_source=email&utm_medium=full-email&utm_campaign=true-north-scholarship-london&utm_content=link.

Europe After Brexit: A one-day conference examining the future stability of the European Union

When: 10.30am-4.45pm Friday 29 March 2019
Where: SG1/SG2 of the Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road, Cambridge

The European Union is facing the most serious crisis in its history and could be on a pathway to disintegration. The question of whether the EU can survive depends on its ability to withstand three decisive challenges – the widespread loss of faith in the Liberal orthodoxies on which the EU was built; the shifting geopolitical environment, in particular the apparent withdrawal of American sponsorship for European integration and attempts by Russia to undermine the EU’s internal unity; and the inevitability of another economic recession, which has the potential to overwhelm the Eurozone. All this has implications for the UK, which will remain umbilically bound to the European continent, as it always has been. To this end, the University of Cambridge’s Forum on Geopolitics will organise a one-day conference that assesses the future of the EU on the day the UK leaves the union and asks whether the apparently deepening crisis in Europe poses an unforeseen challenge to the UK’s security, prosperity and political system after its exit from the EU.
