Group members

The Center established the Diversity Advisory Group in 2017 to provide recommendations on the development of diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives that would increase the number of racially and ethnically diverse CFP® professionals. Diversity Advisory Group members possess experience or talents aligned with the Center’s mission, including expertise and/or leadership in the areas of diversity and recruitment, experience working as a financial planner or in the financial services industry, or academia. The Diversity Advisory Group played a key role in the Center’s 2018 and 2019 Diversity Summits and studies of diversity within the financial planning profession. The group is currently advising the Center on the development of new diversity research and the 2020 Diversity Summit.
