TMA Chicago/Midwest and TMA New York City Tackle Diversity & Inclusion

 

Fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace requires understanding, strong intention, difficult conversations, and action. Last week more than 200 members attended an event co-hosted by the TMA Chicago/Midwest and TMA New York City Chapters, “Diversity & Inclusion Matters: A Bold Path Forward for Restructuring Professionals."

Panelists discussed the landscape for D&I in 2021 and beyond -- why diversity and inclusion is important for practitioners in the restructuring industry -- and practical tips to convert firm strategy into reality.

"TMA New York City and TMA Chicago/Midwest's joint event on diversity and inclusion in the restructuring industry featured a lively and informative discussion of this vital issue as well as a chance for attendees to network and converse with each other. With over 200 guests, the event really showcased TMA's vital role in serving and highlighting the turnaround community.” Marc Skapof, TMA New York City Chapter President

"I am proud to have been a part of the impactful diversity and inclusion program last week that was co-hosted by the TMA Chicago/Midwest and TMA New York City Chapters. The panel discussion, Q&A, and breakout rooms included invaluable lessons in addressing difficult conversations. It was encouraging to see so many of my fellow TMA members active in this important and challenging conversation." Brian Stewart, TMA Chicago/Midwest Chapter President
