Diversity & Inclusion

At Advisor Group, we believe that leveraging each employee’s talents, skills and diverse experience cultivates a workplace where employees can be the most authentic versions of themselves. By including everyone – those with a different race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, physical ability, social class or religious or political beliefs – we create an environment conducive to innovation. With varying viewpoints and diversity of thought, diverse teams create unique solutions that improve our competitive advantage, and are therefore essential to business success. We are truly better together. We are proud to have a highly diverse and inclusive workforce that is representative of the communities in which we work.

We strive for diversity in every aspect of what we do, and work toward inclusion of every single employee in our various activities and events:

  • We consider all facets of diversity and inclusion – generations, gender, career maturity, functional representation, race and access – in everything we do.
  • We ask ourselves with every program and initiative how everyone might participate, benefit or be impacted.
  • We insure diverse representation in our photo shoots, panels, focus groups, activity committees, outreach, career stories, internship program, recruiting, communications planning and town halls.
  • We insure that every level of the organization is represented, not just senior leaders, and that our nominations are diverse.
  • We host annual speed networking events with our executives at each site, based upon performance.

Advisor Group commemorates historic initiatives in diversity

Celebrating Those
Who Made Their Mark

Advisor Group recognizes and celebrates a number of commemorative and historic initiatives, such as Black History Month (February), International Women’s Day (March 8) and Women’s History Month (March). We do this through internal events, company-wide communications and blog posts. Our goal is to challenge each other to think “beyond the single story” and question our preconceptions of what others’ stories must be.

“As a woman, I was very attracted to Advisor Group by the strong leadership of female executives at the firm. But it went so far beyond that. From the beginning, Advisor Group has focused on helping me grow.”

– Shannon, Wealth Management Solutions

Advisor Group has taken the Corporate ParityPledge, sponsored by Parity.org. With women already occupying 50 percent of our executive leadership positions, we are determined to continue growing our workforce diversity. We have committed to interviewing at least one qualified woman candidate for every open position at the vice-president level and above as part of this commitment, and we are committed to gender diversity at all levels in our organization.

Empowering Women To Take The Reins

Women Forward is our comprehensive initiative to support female advisors and advances the role of women in our industry.
