CEPC COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION
The Chicago Estate Planning Council (CEPC) condemns all racially influenced violence and other forms of racism, hatred or intolerance. CEPC is dedicated to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion. We strive to create a welcoming environment for all. The CEPC is committed to providing an enriching, supportive, mentoring and inclusive environment where diverse members are welcomed and retained.
Since 2013, the CEPC’s Diversity Committee has focused on improving all forms of diversity, including, but not limited to, race, religion, ethnicity, gender, LGBTQIA+, and disability. In 2019, the CEPC rolled out its Emerging Leader Program. The goal of the program is to give diverse individuals with fewer than two years’ experience in the estate planning field substantive mentoring and an opportunity to become involved in the work and future leadership of the CEPC.
CEPC reaffirms our long-standing commitment to the inclusion of diverse voices in our membership, programming and leadership.
Dear Members and Guests,
