Speech Topics

State of the Art: The Past, Present, and Future of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Financial Planning Research (CFP & AFC CEU Eligible)

Increasingly, efforts have been established to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the financial planning profession. Still, there is a lack of women, Black, and Latinx financial planners. Luckily, research can shed light on these issues, providing well-founded insights and allowing us the opportunity to impact a growing, dynamic profession directly. This presentation aims to provide an overview of the history of DEI research in financial planning, explain the major findings of contemporary DEI research, and share the areas of opportunity for future studies to improve the profession continuously.
