About our work
At the heart of what we do, our best practices workshops and benchmarking have helped improve policies and benefits for our participating firms. We help firms anticipate questions on new policies, and offer implementation strategies.
We help to celebrate the industry’s successes through our website, newsletter and social media, publicizing industry events and news about what OPEN Finance and our member firms have accomplished. Follow us on social media @openfinancenyc.
From regular happy hours to non-profit fundraising events and career development, OPEN Finance’s networking opportunities bring together all aspects of the LGBT community to strengthen our representation in financial services.
Through cross-firm collaboration, we’re able to create a bigger impact for LGBT related non-profit organizations. Our partnerships with select non-profits allow us to offer our member firms a greater range of opportunities.
Driving increased participation and awareness across the industry results in more widespread progress and more unity across the LGBT community. We strive to reach the most individual members and firms as possible in the New York area.
Every year, we host high profile LGBT and ally leaders to speak about their work to promote inclusive environments. Through these events, we hope to inspire, inform and elevate OPEN Finance member firms.
By hosting targeted events, we help to create a stronger community for, and better visibility of lesbian, bi- and trans* women in the finance industry. Our dedicated team proactively engages with LBT women to understand challenges and create opportunities.
