Building a Diverse Talent Pipeline: Prepare, Recruit, Promote, and Retain Equally
• How do we foster inclusion and diversity in our industry?
• What can we do to create the next generation of diverse finance professionals?
• What strategies and tactics can prepare candidates for recruitment, promotion, and a successful career?

Join us for a conversation with leading women in the financial services industry that will be equally relevant for students and employers.

Explore ways for students to take early ownership of their careers, learn about the variety of career paths available, and understand the value of working in finance. We will also discuss how organizations can frame their student outreach to attract those who have yet to learn about the options available in finance.
