SEC’s D&I Subcommittee Makes Significant Transparency Recommendations
AAAIM Co-Chair Brenda Chia serves on the SEC subcommittee and has pushed for greater transparency in the industry and greater AAPI participation. Both Brenda Chia and Clayton Jue, members of AAAIM’s Executive Board, have testified in series of hearings held by the SEC in 2020. The focus of the Subcommittee has been on the current state of diversity and inclusion in the industry, as well as ways to bring about greater participation from traditionally underrepresented groups. The Subcommittee also considered investor need for transparency regarding matters of diversity and the ease or challenge associated with access to reliable disclosure.
