Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Join a Diverse Network

At the CFO Leadership Council, we believe that diversity strengthens our community. We have been committed, since inception, to provide an environment in which diversity in all its forms are welcomed and engaged in our organization.

Our Mission 

The CFO Leadership Council champions diversity celebrating race, ethnicity and gender, as well as culture, experience, creativity and ideas. By embracing the value of broad perspectives, we not only cultivate success in our business, but return on our promise of empowering CFOs and their teams. 

Our Commitment 

Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion group will hold a series of virtual programs and networking events addressing issues of particular concern to underrepresented groups in financial leadership
All events will be created by our Advisory Board, a diverse group of leaders who are committed to achieving equality in the workforce
An opportunity for all executives to have a voice and make a difference
