World Share is an international financial institution that provides financing to countries around the world, including developing nations, with the aim of promoting sustainable economic growth.
In late 2015, Charlotte de la Cruz, a young accountant with Malta Banking Corporation, applied for a job with World Share in San Diego, California. However, she alienated her interviewer when she stressed that the bank should not lend to countries with corrupt regimes. Instead, she proposed that World Share focus only on lending money to democratic nations that rank well on human rights records. Her interviewer reproached her theory, citing her meager experience in comparison to World Share's leaders. Indignant, Charlotte stormed out of the room under the presumption that her interviewer was reserving the position for her own daughter.
