The Diversity Project

In early 2016, a group of leaders in the investment and savings profession decided to take action to accelerate progress towards an inclusive culture within our industry. We recognise that future success – for our clients, members, employers and shareholders – requires an inclusive culture.

The Diversity Project is working on a series of six 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.

 About Diverse City  

The investment profession is fulfilling, exciting and challenging.

Whether you are a student thinking about your future career, or already in the industry, you can find more information here.

In order to attract the best talent and retain the best leaders, it is vital companies promote a progressive open and welcoming inclusive environment.
