Cvent Transition Guide


For the second installment of CFA Society New York’s new Diversity & Inclusion Forum, we examine how the consultant community is effecting change across the investment industry. Sitting between asset owners and asset managers, consultants can play a unique role in influencing how one or the other undertakes D&I initiatives in both their investment and business practices. Hear from experts in the field discuss changes they have implemented in their search processes and what transformations they foresee as businesses continue to contemplate biased operations and cultures.
