What is IDiF?

Founded in 2020 by Caryn Effron, Dessy Levinson, Samantha Katz and a community of impact leaders, IDiF is the Institute for Diversity and Inclusion in Finance, a nonprofit organization driving equitable access to capital to accelerate economic justice, power, and influence.

In May 2024, we announced that IDiF will be joining IDAC, Inc. and changing its name to The IDAC Foundation, Inc.
