Employee Perspective

"The WLG events are a great way of bringing people together from all parts of the company and sharing a common interest and outcome. I always walk away from a WLG program feeling uplifted and proud to work at Fidelity."

"I haven't been at Fidelity long, but already the WLG has helped me shape my goals and focus my self-perception. I hope to forge further with establishing work relationships and support systems through individuals in WLG, and learn more about managing my career through the workshops that are offered. "

"I want to start by thanking the WLG for continuing to bring such unique and important speakers to Fidelity. As a young employee, I feel such a strong connection to the opportunities Fidelity provides women. This is definitely a perk I never read about in my Fidelity benefits package!"
