Community Convenings

Our monthly “Fireside Chats” bring thought leaders, practitioners and experts together for open and curated discussions providing insight about the financial services industry and what it takes to create systemic change. See all of our past Convenings here.

DEI Resource Hub

Through data collection and partnerships, we bring together thought leaders, academics and research together on our platform to share with the community at large. By leveraging experts in every sector, we act as a hub for information and collaboration to move the industry forward at scale.

Our 12-person Associate Board brings together rising professionals from the sector, giving them a platform and opportunities for transformational executive leadership cultivation.
