100 Women in Finance and Connect by Nova have created a strategic partnership to provide bespoke career sessions to GirlForce 100 mentees as part of their entry into the workforce. Covering key topics to assist pre-career students with key life decisions about education and career, curated webinars will be offered to the mentees on resume writing, interview skills and avoiding burnout in an ever evolving talent market.
“At Connect by Nova, we want to empower students with the knowledge and competitive edge they need to achieve the best possible outcomes” adds Hannah Jackson, Co-Founder at Connect by Nova.
Co-Chair of GirlForce 100 and CEO of Rampd.Consulting Kelly Sage said “We are delighted to work with Connect by Nova to help strength our offering to the mentees of GirlForce 100. The lessons learnt in these sessions will promote them further on their career path and ensure that they are well equipped to embrace the opportunities that come their way.”
Offered virtually to participating registrants, each webinar will be focused on a particular career focused topic and be tailored to the needs of the GirlForce 100 mentees.

GirlForce100 is a strategic community partnership between 100WF and the Cayman Islands Ministry of Education, and provides support, educational guidance and opportunity to young women aged 13-25 years old, attending local educational institutions in the Cayman Islands. GirlForce100 pairs local 100WF members with young women who have indicated an interest in any career in the finance industry and have demonstrated notable potential meriting their placement. Through mentorship, the programme supports mentees in the development and progression of their career paths leading them to success. Now in its eighth year, a previous impact study on the programme found that throughout the programme, mentees experienced increased confidence levels, better school attendance and had more understanding of future career opportunities.
