diversity certification for financial conferences.
Underrepresentation is not a pipeline problem. It is a listening problem.
It’s time we listen to the expert voices of women and people of color.
Imagine if the financial industry looked like the world around us.
The Choir Certification™ sets the financial industry’s first benchmark for conference diversity. Our goal is to make conference stages across all sectors of finance representative of the U.S. population.
No more empty promises
Conference attendees, sponsors, and speakers can trust that Choir Certified Conferences are committed to representation at every level of their event.
The Choir Score™
The Choir Score™ is a proprietary 100-point assessment that quantifies how well a conference highlights the voices of women and people of color - and specifically women of color. Conferences with a Choir Score of 60+ are eligible for Bronze, Silver, or Gold tiered certifications.
Conference organizers receive tailored, actionable tools and frameworks needed to maintain diverse and increasingly representative speaker lineups year after year.
