From WealthManagement.com:How did wealth management come to be dominated by white males and what is the industry doing to change that? That was the question posed by Jolene Lane, the chief diversity officer and vice president for inclusion and equity at the University of Akron, at the Diversitas: Expanding Diversity in Wealth Management symposium on Tuesday.
The conference brought together wealth management professionals with university and high school students to talk about the lack of cultural and gender inclusion in the industry and how to create wider paths to employment for professionals from diverse backgrounds. Diversitas started in 2019 as a spin-off of Financial Planning Women and Diversity Symposium, launched at the University of Akron in 2017.”
