It’s September, already? Don’t get me wrong — I’m ready for some football and tailgating. But it seems like summer flew right past us.
Still, I’m happy for September because in addition to football, it means Power Women in Banking in AMP. It means Best Financial Advisors, and this year, it also means Diversity in the Workplace, a special feature introduced in this month’s issue.
We asked our readers to tell us which Arkansas companies or businesses they feel place a priority on diversity and inclusion of employees of color, gender, orientation, disability and more.
AMP readers also shared with us their “best” financial advisors in the state and who they thought were the movers and shakers among women in the Arkansas banking and finance industry. Also inside, we’ve got the return of Texas, fintech, cybersecurity, hospitals in the surge and more.
We also have an executive Q&A with Susannah Marshall, the state banking commissioner; a financial advisor Q&A with five of the best advisors Central Arkansas has to offer; and a fintech Q&A with Vance Smiley of Southern Bancorp and Wayne Miller of The Venture Center.
Thank you for reading. Enjoy what’s left of summer, and send me your comments at HBaker@ARMoneyandPolitics.com.
