I am absolutely delighted to be joining industry leaders on The Diversity Project advisory board. The Diversity Project has driven change in the industry but there is still much to do.

About The Diversity Project.

The Diversity Project is a cross-company initiative championing a more inclusive culture within the Savings and Investment profession.

We believe that we have an extraordinary opportunity to press the re-set button in our industry: to recruit, nurture and retain the first truly diverse generation of Savings and Investment professionals.

That generation will themselves perpetuate diversity in our industry; we are looking to break one cycle and create another. If we are successful, in the next four years:

  • Our businesses will better reflect both society at large and the individuals who trust us with their money.
  • Our people will create better financial outcomes to benefit our diverse savers and investors.
  • We will attract more interest in the industry with a pipeline of diverse talent.

Diversity is not only our social obligation, it’s a business imperative.

I really like this article
