Women in Wealth Webinar: Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion: What’s in it for Me?

October 19, 2020 | 4:30 - 6:00 p.m. ET

Welcome with Herman Brodie:
Join us live as Herman Brodie examines the hurdles of progressing from a behavioral perspective. He will demonstrate how greater career success is the reward for individuals who see diversity and inclusion as a skill to be learned. This session focuses on one behavioral concept that crucially shapes those interpersonal exchanges: the stereotype. All of us use stereotypes, but Herman will explore how/why they are formed and how they can be changed.

Panel Discussion:
Our panelists Laura Gregg, Kate Healy, and Amy Webber will evaluate diversity in the workplace. Learn how addressing diversity within your organization can make a positive impact with client discussions, investing strategies and overall success.
