On Tuesday, May 24, 2015, CME Group, in conjunction with the CME Group Foundation, hosted a forum to introduce “Chicago’s Financial Services Pipeline: Bridging the Diversity Gap – Building African-American and Latino Talent Pipelines.”
The Forum brought more than 60 education, nonprofit, financial, and corporate professionals, as well as leaders from the FSP member institutions together to learn about the Initiative and projects that the Initiative is beginning to launch in Chicago. Specifically, the purpose of the Forum was to:
- Learn about the work completed to date by the Initiative;
- Learn about projects emanating from recently completed research; and
- Discuss ways that this work intersects with potential partnering organizations.
