For two years, Abisola sponsored a bespoke investment banking internship program targeting women from wider university and subject pools to further increase diversity of both gender and background in the bank. Through Barclays’ gender network, Win, Abisola annually delivers networking and mentoring offerings to over 300 interns across the Barclays Group. She has stewarded new external partnerships for Barclays, launching last year to an audience of 61% female and 84% ethnic minority students and graduates from across the country. In the wake of the pandemic, Abisola spearheaded a strategic pivot: transforming her development program offering into a virtual platform whilst continuing her focused support for diversity in the talent pipeline. Outside Barclays, Abisola collaborates with universities, student societies and other organizations to advance female talent, and for the last five years has been delivering insight and confidence workshops on personal development, personal brand, and commercial awareness at top UK universities.
