Inclusion and Diversity committee

Inclusive and diverse teams deliver impressive results. Superior performance makes firms more competitive, better able to provide value to their clients and helps them to attract outstanding talent. CFA UK's Inclusion and Diversity Committee leads the Inclusion and Diversity Network with the aim of championing these values within the profession and promoting that investment is open to all.
