Diverse City

Diverse City logo

The Diversity Project - which aims to see equality of opportunity across the investment and savings industry – is working on a series of five events across the UK designed to raise around £2m to support charities who have been affected by the revelations following The President’s Club dinner.

Diverse City also aims to provide more resources for initiatives such as work experience and mentoring which can help boost diversity and inclusion in the profession.
