DEI Awareness Initiative for Treasury and Finance
Introducing the DEI Awareness Initiative for Treasury and Finance. With our founding partner, Invesco, AFP has launched this awareness initiative to introduce treasury and finance careers to underrepresented communities.
As the profession rapidly evolves, there is a growing need for professionals with diverse skills, mindsets, and backgrounds. At AFP, we know every individual carries a wealth of knowledge within and when we create more seats at the table and more opportunities for your voice to be heard, that is how we propel the profession into the future.
Our goal is to empower young professionals with professional development, skills building, ongoing training, and continuous learning so that they can lead rewarding careers in treasury and finance.

Share your career story with us and help create a more inclusive treasury and finance profession.
With members around the globe, AFP endeavors to create a treasury and finance community that fully actualizes and celebrates heterogeneous peoples, cultures, and beliefs. Because of this, we have created resources to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in education. Our resources are not exhaustive and we encourage you to continue your DEI education outside of AFP.
In a moderated discussion, Jim Kaitz, President and CEO of AFP is joined by Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., the President and CEO of SHRM and Matt Sigelman, CEO of Burning Glass Technologies to discuss how organizations can build a diverse company for the long term and strategies to identify existing talent in their organizations to drive successful diversity and inclusion initiatives.
With the advent of globalization and technological advancements, the workforce has expanded beyond a nation’s borders, leveraging the global network of diverse candidates from countries around the world. As such, diversity and inclusion have become key buzzwords over the years as organizations dedicate resources to establishing and maintaining a diverse and inclusive organization.
