Pilotlight expands its partnership with BlackRock

Posted 06 Nov 2018 | Our News | Partnerships

Pilotlight is pleased to announce that we are expanding our partnership with BlackRock.

Pilotlight and BlackRock started working together in 2017, following an endorsement from BlackRock’s Women’s Initiative Network (WIN). We are delighted to welcome 20 new BlackRock Pilotlighters to the Pilotlight Programme this year.

Erica Handling, BlackRock Managing Director and Co-Chair of WIN, said “we ran the programme with a group of WIN Managing Directors and Directors last year and it was a great success. This opportunity is a great stepping stone to further board positions as well as a chance to support some brilliant charities."

Gillian Murray, CEO of Pilotlight, said “it is fantastic to grow our partnership with BlackRock, which will enable many more female business leaders to develop their skills and make a lasting social impact.”

BlackRock’s goal is to help investors build better financial futures and is trusted to manage more money than any other investment firm. As a fiduciary to clients, BlackRock provides the investment and technology solutions investors need to plan for their most important goals. As of September 30, 2018, BlackRock manages approximately $6.44 trillion in assets on behalf of investors worldwide.
