FINRA’s Diversity Summit provides a forum for business leaders, diversity practitioners and human resource professionals in the financial services industry to explore a variety of corporate practices, strategies and outreach efforts intended to leverage the benefits of building sustainable diversity and inclusion programs.

Hear from FINRA President and CEO Robert Cook and other business and industry leaders as we address diversity and inclusion as a catalyst for success in the financial services industry. Program highlights include:

  • a conversation with Stefanie Johnson, Associate Professor, University of Colorado, Leeds Schools of Business about recent research on the relationship between finalist pools and hiring decisions;
  • a discussion about how unconscious brain biases in the workplace can unknowingly shape the organization's culture and how these biases can be overcome with purposeful action; and
  • an interactive session where participants engage in discussions around best practices, challenges and solutions for creating opportunities and innovation through diversity and inclusion.
