The BAME in the City society was set up at King’s College London University with the sole purpose of improving diversity in city-led industries. The society aims to do this by supporting BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) students in successfully accessing opportunities, internships and graduate roles during university in order to secure top careers in the City upon graduating.
There are over 17,000 BME students at King’s College London out of the 27,629 students and despite 88.3% of BME students at King’s College London attaining a 1st or 2:1 according to recent figures; access to the city is still an issue. This is because there are BAME students who have incredible potential but often lack access to the work experience, skill development and mentoring needed to succeed.
King’s BAME in the City society aims to grow the number of BAME students in top city firms through commercial awareness workshops, events, skills sessions and networking opportunities throughout the year.
We want to educate the King’s community about the various career paths within industries such as law, financial services, banking and consultancy. Whilst the society is aimed at BAME students, anyone can join because we want to build a network of ambitious, diverse students.
