Why Get Involved

There are a number of ways to work with the Diversity Project and help create a cycle of positive change in the UK investment and savings industry.

Peer Network Group

A cross-industry diversity and inclusion forum where you can collaborate and benchmark in a supportive environment. Find out what your peers are doing and discover what works and what doesn’t. Engaged, inspired and informed, you can introduce and accelerate new diversity initiatives in your own organisation whilst avoiding the pitfalls.

Awareness Raising

Collectively, we work to increase understanding, enthusiasm and action on diversity issues through our topical events and powerful role model campaigns. Bringing everyone on board in a spirit of true collaboration, it is a great way to engage your people in a landmark movement for positive change in our industry.

Shared Learning and Best Practice

Improve performance and productivity with direct access to peer sharing, case studies, guides and more. Better still, it’s all specific to our industry – relevant, timely information that can inspire and ignite positive change. It also gives you the opportunity to share your own experiences and to play your part in creating a more diverse investment and savings sector.

Access to new initiatives

Gain valuable access to our Pathway Programme, The Investment Springboard, the Cross Company Returners Programme, #TalkAboutBlack, The Skills Workshop, LGBT Great’s Project 1000, City Hive’s Mentoring Scheme and many other programmes. Whether you’re ready to introduce profound diversity changes within your organisation or simply making tentative first steps, our new initiatives are a highly cost-effective way to get started.

Breadth of D, E & I dimensions

No matter where you are on your D, E & I journey, simply pick the topics that best align with your company strategy and your priorities. At the Diversity Project, we embrace 15 different D, E & I dimensions, so whatever you’re focused on, there’s sure to be someone who can help.

Regulatory Obligations

Supporting member firms to meet the standards expected by the regulators.

Types of D, E & I

Supported by asset and wealth managers, investment consultants, family offices, industry and professional bodies and other stakeholders.
