#BuildingMomentum: Diversity Project Annual Event

Date: 18th September 2017


Over 300 investment industry professionals attended this Diversity Project’s Industry Event, kindly hosted by Aviva at their offices on the 18th September 2017.

“The seminar was an exciting milestone, showing how the Diversity Project is really building momentum towards a more inclusive, more diverse investment and savings industry. It’s too early to celebrate success but heartening to see how the efforts of so many people right across the industry are joining together to create a new urgency around the goals.”

Helena Morrissey – Head of Personal Investing LGIM and Chairwoman of the Diversity Project
