We won top honors for our Mentors Through Allyship Program and also received recognition for our Virtual Regional Events Initiative .
PHILADELPHIA –Janney Montgomery Scott LLC, a leading full-service wealth management, capital markets, and asset management firm, earned a prestigious WealthManagement.com Industry Award in the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion category among all broker-dealers for its Mentors Through Allyship Program (MAP).
MAP’s overarching goal is to support Janney’s ongoing commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive culture. Over a six-month period utilizing a diversity-focused reverse mentor relationship, participants are paired with a team member whose background is opposite of their own and then provided with diversity and inclusion related themes and topics to explore. The dialogue is aimed at increasing awareness of different perspectives and experiences to enhance diversity competencies through professional- and personal-based discussions. Participants are then better equipped to navigate differences, mitigate bias, and develop empathy for others moving forward.
“Fostering a diverse and inclusive culture remains a top priority for our firm, and we’re honored to receive this recognition for our Mentors Through Allyship Program. Given the challenging landscape over the last 18 months, this honor means a tremendous amount to our team. We strive to implement creative programs, initiatives, and solutions to support our diversity goals and objectives, and we look forward to continuing the work to help make our firm and communities more equitable and inclusive places for all,” said Tim Scheve, CEO of Janney.
Janney was also a finalist in the Practice Management category among broker-dealers with fewer than 1,000 advisors for its Virtual Regional Events Initiative, which includes a series of client/prospect webinars to support practice management and enhance business development for Financial Advisors during the pandemic. Topics are designed around a holistic financial planning approach, while providing both content and touchpoints to enhance the client experience and strengthen the client-advisor relationship.
Janney has previously won Industry Awards in the Social Media Leadership, Technology, and Practice Management categories. The winners, determined by a panel of industry-leading judges, were selected from more than 900 entries submitted from 346 different companies this year. View the full list of awardees here.
