The Investment Company Institute is committed to fostering greater workplace diversity and inclusion in the regulated funds industry.

To serve investors in the best ways possible, it’s important that our industry’s workforce reflects the diversity of our shareholders.

Research shows: organizations that include different perspectives generate higher-quality ideas and create more value.

So, ICI is launching the Talent Connection program to introduce law students from underrepresented groups to our industry as a career choice.

We are offering free webinars to familiarize students with our industry—and help with their job search. We’ll be hosting in-person events when those become possible.

With trillions of dollars in assets under management, regulated funds help over 100 million shareholders achieve their personal financial goals, including retirement and funding their children’s education.

We invite the best and the brightest to join us in this important work on behalf of America’s investors.
