Innovation today is driven by the needs of the individual – each person’s unique opinions, beliefs and preferences – which is why traditional methods of innovation frankly won’t cut it in the Digital Age.

As analytics technology continues to advance, so too does the customization of the user experience. And as the bar in some sectors rises from innovation, other sectors are forced to change as well to meet the growing expectations of stakeholders. Across retail, healthcare and even government industries, examples of this shift can be found now and are transforming the way people live, work and play.

We are living in a new age for innovation, created by the limitless applications of technology. Those who manage to embrace technology will gain an advantage in a crowded landscape. Those who don’t, may fall hopelessly behind.

About the Council for Inclusion in Financial Services

The Council for Inclusion in Financial Services (CIFS) is an industry initiative created to help the financial services industry develop and sustain an inclusive workforce. The CIFS was initially formed to address the requirements of Section 342 of The Dodd-Frank Act that relate to supplier utilization, women, and minorities in senior leadership roles. To address the fundamental challenges that inadvertently create exclusionary practices which limit access to all groups, The CIFS develops tools, training, certifications and sourcing vehicles for organizations across all financially related industry verticals. The advisory board of The CIFS exists to facilitate rapid industry change and create forward movement by bridging the gap between the various diversity and inclusion initiatives within the financial services industry.
