Diversity & Inclusion and the FCS Mission

The FCS mission comprises three simple words – but three important values: Community, Education, Philanthropy. And as we always say, our mission begins with Community. Today, to put it simply, we want our Community to be more, to do more.

We are proud to announce the formation of the FCS Diversity & Inclusion Steering Committee. Our goal is to develop programs to help people underrepresented in our industry explore and advance their careers in all areas of financial and fintech marketing, media and communications.

The Steering Committee will be led by eight volunteers from the FCS Board of Directors. They are Nia Armstrong of Investing Media Solutions; Abiy Bekele of SmartBrief, Kevin LaPierre of CME Group, Kirti Naik of Tikka Solutions; Julia Pawling of AIG; Melissa Scauri of Morgan Stanley; Damon Webber of Bank of America; and Ahmed Yearwood of Y INTERACT.

We’re delighted to note that former FCS Board Director Renée Baker, DBA, Head of PCG Advisor Inclusion Networks at Raymond James, will serve as an advisor to our committee.

While the remote work environment may challenge near-term activation of some of our plans, we look forward to helping the industry move forward.
