Wealthspire Advisors Partners with Choir to Advance Diversity and Inclusion in Media Landscape

New York, July 11, 2023 – Wealthspire Advisors LLC, a leading independent registered investment advisory firm and NFP subsidiary, today announced a partnership with Choir, a tech platform created to increase the diversity of experts across media and corporate events. Choir’s Voices Search, now officially out of beta testing, will revolutionize the way underrepresented experts are discovered, and Wealthspire Advisors will be part of the inaugural group of participants.

“We recognize the overwhelming need for a diverse perspective and expertise in our industry,” said Mike LaMena, Wealthspire’s CEO. “A partnership with Choir aligns with our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, and enables us to amplify fresh voices throughout our company and the industry in order to create a more inclusive landscape.”

Voices Search will allow journalists, conference planners, and corporate marketers to search and filter through detailed professional profiles that exclusively showcase people of color, women, and/or non-binary professionals, along with their areas of expertise.

“As journalists and conference organizers make intentional decisions to search outside their own networks, we are pioneering in a way not done before,” said co-founder of Choir, Liv Gagnon. “Choir elevates and prioritizes experts that have not had the opportunity to have the spotlight based on their race, gender, and other diversity metrics.”

Choir’s beta testing of Voices Search has already led to significant interest, sparking connections with top-tier journalists from publications such as The New York Times, CNBC, Buzzfeed, and Financial Planning, as well as speaking requests from financial industry event planners.
