Three Ways You Can Support Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

While the opportunity to create and sustain wealth has been limited for many people of color, this rings particularly true for Black people in America due to systemic inequality, racism and structural barriers. The membership of the UHNW Institute and the clients we serve represent tremendous social, political and financial capital that can be used to disrupt harmful practices and policies. As we celebrate Black History Month, we wanted to share three ways, we as individuals, can support diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) within the organizations where we hold positions of power.

1) Be ready and able to serve the “New Majority”[1]:

2) Explore ways to use organizational power to dismantle inequality:

3) Be the best ally in the spaces where you operate:

We look forward to sharing more resources on allyship and other ways you and The UHNW Institute can advance diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. There is much work to be done, but the rewards will benefit us all. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions.
