[Webcast] Race and Inclusion Now: An Investment Industry Call to Action

Event Description

Race and Inclusion Now: 
An Investment Industry Call to Action
July 2 | 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM ET

Join CFA Institute for a special online panel discussion that brings together two investment industry leaders — each of which have clear goals on race and inclusion for our industry — and an identity and diversity scholar and researcher who is an expert on how organizations can foster positive relationships across differences.

What should our actions be to confront racism in the investment industry? As responsible investment professionals, what steps can we take as individuals? What commitment to racial inclusion should we expect from our organizations?
