Triple FS – Females Fast Forward in Financial Services
Triple FS is an action-focused initiative developed by EY, MetLife and BNY Mellon with the singular goal of increasing female leadership in the Financial Services industry across Ireland, through a unique mentorship programme and complimentary targeted events. The programme matches high potential females, who are preparing to step into a leadership role, with successful male and female leaders from other Financial Services organisations.
The first year of the Triple FS programme, which started last September, has come to a close and we are now looking for new mentors from the Financial Services sector to take part in the next programme that will begin in September 2019. Scroll down to watch our video, where the current mentors and mentees talk about the benefits of getting involved in this initiative.
Triple FS is unique because it:
Is focused solely on female leadership in the Financial Services industry
Is a niche programme which targets experienced female professionals who have been identified by their business as having high potential for a near term senior leadership position such as Executive/Board/Partner level.
Pairs mentees with a male or female senior leader in a different organisation within the FS industry
Achieves pairings via a hands-on matching process based on the specific needs of the mentees and strengths of the mentors
Offers targeted action-oriented workshop style events focused on leadership for both mentors, mentees and guests

Below is some of the feedback we received from participants:
I think this is one of the most beneficial programs I have been on. The networking opportunities were excellent. I also found it really beneficial to have an independent mentor to help me focus on my career with allotted time.
I found the pairing with my mentor very good – we had similar background so he was able to provide me with very relevant advice. Overall, fantastic programme and I feel very privileged to have been part of it.
Great opportunity to receive independent, impartial advice and a different perspective on things. Good for building my external network.
