In honour of International Women's Day, Valerie Rogerson shares her personal experience of progression in financial services.

Every year Nucleus chooses a charity partner, an organisation we commit to supporting with a range of different fundraising activities throughout the year. Last year, we were proud to support the Scottish Association for Mental Health, known as SAMH, and raised a massive £42,000 in total.

This year we are supporting The Yard, which provides adventure play opportunities for disabled children and young people. Annually The Yard works with over 2,200 children, creating a community where young people have fun and adults are free from judgement.
