Moody’s HerCapital Program launched in 2021 in partnership with Sponsors of Educational Opportunity (SEO). The six-month program aims to build the confidence of women leaders entering finance, tech and economics by focusing on various soft, technical and professional skills. The current cohort of more than 160 female students — most of whom are from historically underrepresented groups — attend 51 universities in Belgium, the U.K. and Germany. In addition to authentic exposure to the financial services industry, the program offers opportunities for internships with Moody’s.
By partnering with Fundación MarViva, we worked to elevate sustainable fishing practices and provide e-commerce tools for environmentally responsible artisanal fishermen in Latin America to grow their businesses. The promotion of marine sustainability and the support of coastal families, many of whom are living in extreme poverty, help to build more inclusive and resilient communities at the local level. Additionally, Moody’s employees engaged in skill-based volunteering events aimed at helping MarViva tackle some of its organizational strengthening needs through, for example, virtual training sessions.
In partnership with WEConnect International, our “Financing Your Growing Business” program supports women business owners through interactive boot camps and online training modules that focus on credit training and accessing markets and capital.
WEConnect International connects more than 13,000 women-owned businesses based in over 125 countries to qualified buyers. One participant, Dr. Alison Eyring, used the knowledge she learned during the boot camp to create Produgie, a technology company focused on democratizing business growth enablement.
