RADNOR, Pa. -- Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE:LNC) is proud to announce that Allison Green, senior vice president of Diversity, Inclusion and Employee Engagement, will present at the 2nd annual Mobilizing the Power of Women Summit in New York City on June 21, 2018. Hosted by Ellevate Network, the leading global network for professional women, the Summit brings together people from across a variety of backgrounds and experiences to discuss issues of importance in the world today and bring actionable change to gender inequity. Green will be included on a panel of thought leaders addressing how diversity, inclusion, equality can impact real and lasting change in the workforce.
"While diversity, inclusion and equality are not mutually exclusive, they are distinct enough to warrant unwavering leadership commitment and organizational practices which ensure a respectful workplace and allow all employees to demonstrate their full potential,” said Green.
This is the second year that Lincoln’s The WISE Group (Women, Inspiring, Supporting and Educating), an organization founded in 2015 to better support the unique needs of female financial advisors and clients, has supported the Mobilizing the Power of Women Summit as a sponsor and participant.
