Lawton Retirement Joins Firms Making Diversity Push

The firm is partnering with bilingual education expert Rebecca Heaton Juarez to deliver broader-based financial wellness and participant educational services in multiple languages.

Lawton Retirement Plan Consultants LLC has formed an association with bilingual education expert Rebeca Heaton Juarez to provide bilingual financial wellness and 401(k) plan participant educational services.

Heaton Juarez is lauded by Lawton for her six years of service in the U.S. Air Force. The firm also highlights her “seven years of experience teaching, leading and educating” in the Milwaukee Public Schools, at the Milwaukee College Prep School and as part of the City Year and AmeriCorps service programs.

More information on Heaton Juarez’s background is available on the Lawton Retirement Plan Consultants website. In her new role, she will formally become director of bilingual employee education at Lawton Retirement Plan Consultants.

It should quickly be noted that other retirement plan services firms have recently announced their own efforts to expand the cultural awareness and diversity of their products, services and work force. The same is true when it comes to efforts to boost the number of women working in the financial services field.
