Finance Diversity Program

The Finance Diversity program is a Kelley School initiative designed to increase the diversity of high-potential students choosing a finance major and pursuing a career within corporations and the financial services. The program’s ultimate goal is to lead to more diversity among professionals from corporate America and Wall Street and contribute to better decision making through diversity.

The program provides professional development opportunities to high-potential students at an early stage in their academic careers and strives to empower diverse individuals to be confident being their authentic selves in the workplace and beyond. It is sponsored by the Department of Finance, is faculty directed, and is led by student leaders in the Investment Banking, Investment Management, Commercial Real Estate, and the Charles Schwab Wealth Management workshops.
