Diversity. Equity. Inclusion.
Building a Culture of Belonging.

Now more than ever, companies recognize the role workforce diversity and inclusion plays in both addressing widespread inequality and enhancing business value. At LPL, we understand it’s our responsibility to incorporate diversity at every level of our workforce and promote equity and inclusion in our culture. We know when diverse voices are integrated in our decision making, our business performs better.

Intentional efforts for tangible results

As part of our emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion, we continued to increase the balance of diversity in our organization, across all ranks. We focused on promoting and hiring women and people of color to roles at or above the vice president level, resulting in an increase in diverse representation at the senior levels of LPL.

Employee Development

In 2020, we took a new approach to our Emerging Leaders Program, our flagship initiative for providing development opportunities for high-potential AVPs and VPs. This program became virtual and we shifted the balance to include more women and people of color.

In addition, the Women Business Leaders Program was conducted for 100 women leaders to help empower them while discussing methods to support women within their own teams, including hosting a panel of women in the earlier stages of their careers to share their experiences.
