Young Office Programme – Equal Opportunities for all Young People
We at Borenius are committed to foster diversity and social inclusion in all aspects of work life. One of our core values, respecting others, is at the heart of everything we do. We want to do our part and provide young people with the opportunity to reach their full potential no matter of their background. We also know that finding an inspiring place where to complete a work experience period is not easy. Therefore, a couple of years ago we implemented a Young Office programme, together with Tekir, with the aim to provide the opportunity to explore academic professions to young people with multicultural backgrounds and to those who have no earlier connections to the academic world.
A spark to study
Our main goal is to spark interest in studying among young people who visit us for a week. We want to motivate these future talents to dream big and pursue towards their goals.
We believe that these young people get more out of the work experience period when the programme also includes mentoring. At Borenius, in addition to introduction to a law firm’s daily office tasks and different departments, we offer an opportunity to meet up with our CEO, lawyers, and HR people, who will not only talk about our company and careers but also discuss young people’s future and dreams.
Connections for future
The importance of creating networks is well recognised in today’s working life. Connections can provide support in different stages of your career path and it is possible to find your future job with the help of these connections. We aim to support our work experience periods to clarify young people’s study plans and encourage them to keep in touch with us in the future too.
Fostering connections between multicultural young people and the business world helps to build a diverse working life and supports equality. For us, Young Office also offers a possibility to expand our understanding as well as to find the top talents of the future!
