Around the Table Episode 2: The Difference Between Diversity and Inclusion

LPL Financial

Diversity focuses on differences. Inclusion is about understanding and embracing those differences. What are you doing to create an environment in which different kinds of clients can feel comfortable trusting you with one of the most personal areas of their lives ─ their money?

Use Diversity and Inclusion to Match Your Business to the Markets It Serves

In this episode of “Around the Table,” the topic is the difference between diversity and inclusion. LPL leaders and advisors talk about their definitions of the two concepts and how integrating both into their practices helps them connect with clients and prospects from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives.

For one advisor, simply forgoing a suit and tie in day-to-day interactions with clients sets a more comfortable tone. The important thing, as another advisor points out, is that an advisor’s business should understand and represent the people it serves.

Watch the complete episode to gain more perspectives on how you can use diversity and inclusion to better serve your clients ─ and possibly reach new ones.

You can also learn about some of the things we’re doing at LPL to create a more diverse, inclusive culture for our advisors and employees.
