Abstract

Even though African Americans make up about 13% of the United States population, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports they account for only about 7.6% of financial services practitioners.

In response to this significant representation gap, several business and community leaders are leading efforts to change the face of the advisory industry into one more representative of the United States as a whole.
