Season 2, Episode 6
Many of us have stories of attending conferences and feeling like the voices on stage resemble something like a one-note choir. Underrepresentation of women and people of color continues to be a problem throughout financial services, and it often feels painfully evident at professional gatherings and conferences. To try and change this, Sonya Dreizler and Liv Gagnon founded CHOIR, the first diversity certification for financial conferences. This week, Sonya and Liv join Renegade Capital to share why they believe increasing representation is important and how CHOIR is meant to help.
