Diverse City

The Diversity Project - which aims to see equality of opportunity across the investment and savings industry – is working on a series of events across the UK designed to raise around £2m in two years, 2018 and 2019, 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.
