Cvent Transition Guide

Overview

Tune in to this can’t-miss discussion centering on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the investment industry—and stay abreast of the latest information regarding CFA Institute’s initiative, aimed at developing a voluntary code designed to guide DEI.

As the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) increasingly looks to integrate DEI disclosure requirements into rule-making, CFA Institute has taken the lead in developing these guidelines, recognizing that, historically, diversity of perspectives yields better investor outcomes.

Attendees will hear directly from SEC and investment practitioners as they examine developments in DEI—as well as CFA Institute’s new suggested DEI code—and discuss the ways in which an inclusive investment industry will better serve our society’s diverse membership community.
