Nicsa’s Fearless Leadership Symposium Draws Industry Powerhouses to the Stage

By Nicsa posted 19 days ago


Nicsa’s Fearless Leadership Symposium – the first and only national conference focusing solely on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) issues specific to the global asset management and fund industry – is set to take place June 16-17. The program will bring together senior business executives to explore how inclusive leadership can enhance productivity, promote growth, and impact the bottom line. \


Attendees will hear from industry visionaries via powerful keynotes, interactive panel discussions, and succinct “Lightning Talks” aimed at empowering business leaders to “own” DEI issues and embed inclusion into the day-to-day fabric of how they run their businesses — ideals synonymous with Nicsa’s Diversity Project North America (DPNA).
