BAI Banking Outlook Webinar: Supporting and Nurturing Diverse, Inclusive Workforces in Financial Services Organizations


What: Building diverse, equitable and inclusive financial services organizations continues to be a top priority for leaders at all levels. Organizations with strong diversity and inclusion environments are more likely to have employees with increased job satisfaction and companies that have more diverse workforces are more likely to outperform less diverse peers by 15% to 35%. 1

BAI’s most recent BAI Banking Outlook research spotlights the state of diversity, equity and inclusion in the financial services industry. A panel of senior diversity, equity and inclusion leaders from leading financial services organizations will delve into the research findings and share their experiences and learnings on the most impactful changes that will move their organizations and the industry forward.

Join BAI to explore answers to the leading questions about how financial services leaders can move their diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives forward through a panel discussion on:

  • What is the state of diversity, equity and inclusion in the financial services industry, including leadership support and general employee sentiment?
  • What formal practices and structures do financial services leaders have in place to advance diversity, equity and inclusion programs in their organizations?
  • What additional programs, policies and structures should financial service leaders consider and how will the impact be measured?
