Aspirational Portrait of a Confident Female Business Executive


Thank you for joining the Futuremakers Forum 2022 and sharing your ideas, expertise and time with young people. Over 1000 people joined the virtual event and more than 360 bank volunteers supported the mentors den on 6-7 July. We heard first-hand from our young Futuremakers participants about their big ambitions, the problems they are facing and some of the solutions that are needed to lift participation in an inclusive economy.

Check out the session recordings on Business Fights Poverty website to learn more. 

We are pleased to share our recently published research led by Business Fights Poverty in partnership with the University of Cambridge. This research deepened our understanding of Futuremakers participants’ experiences, gathered key stakeholder first-hand insights and built upon existing thought-leading analysis. The outputs provide the basis for the 2022 Futuremakers Forum and will help shape our future financial inclusion programmes.
