Pilotlight expands partnership with BlackRock for a fourth year

Posted 24 Nov 2020 | Our News | Partnerships

We are delighted to announce that we are expanding our partnership with BlackRock for a fourth year.

Pilotlight and BlackRock started working together in 2017, following an endorsement from BlackRock’s Women’s Initiative Network (WIN). Since then the partnership has enabled over 50 senior (mostly female) leaders to share their skills and develop themselves on the Pilotlight Programme. To date these senior leaders have offered strategic support to 35 charities from across the UK to become more efficient and effective. We are delighted to welcome a new cohort of Pilotlighters who will be supporting over 15 more charities through the programme.

Helen Jewell, Co-Chair of WIN EMEA and Global Director of Research for Fundamental Equities at BlackRock:

BlackRock is delighted to continue its partnership with Pilotlight. The programme is highly-rated and is a key way for our people to use their skills and knowledge to give back to communities all over the UK.

Bruce McCombie, Deputy Chief Executive at Pilotlight, said:

We are proud to continue partnering with BlackRock. Together we enable top talent to offer their expertise to help charities thrive, which is arguably never more needed during such difficult times. We’re also proud to support the Women’s Initiative Network through this partnership, helping to enhance employee learning and increase diversity within senior leadership roles. I look forward to hearing from the Pilotlighters and about their experience.

BlackRock is a global investment manager, serving the UK market for more than 20 years. It’s committed to helping more and more people plan for their financial future.
