Over the past few weeks, we have mourned alongside communities across the nation following the devastating events that recently took place in Minneapolis and elsewhere. Black lives matter, and it is long-overdue that we abolish systemic racial injustice and inequality in our country.
After many days of self-reflection, listening to important voices, and having discussions on representation within our team, we decided we wanted to use our platform and share resources to create change in the industry we know best: financial services, a field in which people of color make up less than 4%.
Below, we have shared links to three articles and thought leadership pieces that we have found particularly helpful, eye-opening, and compelling during this time. It’s just a start, but we hope that reading these pieces and seeing these perspectives will spark important, honest conversations within your own firms.
