In July, CFA Institute, a founding member of the Diversity Project North America, published a draft if its voluntary Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Code for the Investment Profession in the US and Canada for public comment.
We’ve now entered the last two weeks of the public consultation period. If you have not already done so, we are asking asset management industry participants to review the Code and provide the valuable feedback necessary to help make this initiative a success.
The draft DEI Code represents collaboration between CFA Institute and a Working Group of industry leaders to foster a commitment that will lead to greater inclusion of wider viewpoints from diverse talent, which should result in better investment outcomes and help create better working environments. Justine Phoenix, Head of Diversity Project North America at Nicsa, represented Nicsa on the DEI Code Working Group.
The press release, which includes a link to the draft Code, can be accessed here.
The DEI Code has been published on the CFA Institute website. Comments on the draft should be provided in the Response Form and submitted to email@example.com by September 4, 2021.
