The Banking and Finance Oath (The BFO) has today announced applications are now open for its 2021-2022 Young Ambassador Program. The Program encourages and supports students and graduates to adopt a strong ethical foundation as they begin their careers in the banking and finance industry.
Recognising students as the future leaders of the banking and finance industry, each year The BFO selects up to seven students, graduates and young people new to the industry, who demonstrate a commitment to ethics in banking and finance.
This is an opportunity for individuals with strong ethical principles and integrity to assert themselves, reflect on what they want to stand for as a future leader, and consider how they can contribute to the betterment of the industry going forward.
The Young Ambassadors Program offers the opportunity for young people to participate in a 12-month program, including training and development, exposure to industry leaders, full access to The BFO events and a chance to connect with an elder of the industry.
Head of The Banking and Finance Oath Cris Parker, said, “The BFO provides young people with an opportunity to unite, not just in terms of where but also how they choose to work as professionals.
“While the Program provides value to the individuals through the offerings and challenges, it also creates an opportunity for these young industry professionals to lead. The BFO is working with universities to drive awareness of the Program and encourage students who are passionate about upholding strong ethical values as they embark on their career”, said Ms Parker.
The BFO is an initiative founded by industry leaders and part of The Ethics Centre. The Oath contains a set of commitments that individuals can adopt and apply as personal principles in their work.
