The DEI Council, is pleased to announce that NAIFA will held a three-day Impact Week in April. The Council is planning the event and are looking to invite all financial services professionals, NAIFA partners and media to save the date and pre-register to save your spot.
The event was 100% virtual. Last year, we welcomed over 800 people on our Diversity Day of NAIFA Nation: Impact Week. We could not fit all of our speakers in and the feedback was so positive, that this year we are expanding the event.
