  1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?
  2. Attending the Women in Investment Event was a unique experience to network with current employees and learn more about the opportunities available at Aberdeen Standard Investments. I would truly recommend attending this Insight (afternoon) to learn more about the company and get tips on how to apply for a role in this organisation.
