Watch the 2021 Practice Progress Webinar Finale on Demand

Industry leaders say there is simply no question that the events of the past two years have caused a fundamental rethinking within the industry regarding the importance of improving diversity and inclusion. The last Practice Progress webinar for 2021 will explore this critical topic.

Successful advisers say mentorship is a key to solving the industry’s clear and present diversity problem. There are other strategies that work as well, including creating compensation frameworks that take into account the challenges of moving from a salary or hourly-based position to a job frequently involving commissions and potentially complex, incentive-based pay structures.

This hourlong editorial webinar—the last edition of the Practice Progress webinar series for 2021—will examine these and other important topics meant to help advisers address the lack of diversity in the financial advisory field.
