The feedback from Jennifer Brown’s keynote to four hundred of our financial advisors and regional leaders was incredibly positive. She spoke about diversity and inclusion in such a way that our attendees were able to truly connect with her and understand the significance of this topic in the business world today. We wanted more of her knowledge and purchased a copy of her book, Inclusion: Diversity, The New Workplace & The Will To Change for every member of the audience.
