WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Financial Alliance for Racial Equity (FARE) named Shani Armon, Chief Membership and Marketing Officer with the Insured Retirement Institute (IRI), to its board of directors.
“I’m proud that IRI is leading diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts within the insured retirement industry,” Armon said. “Joining FARE’s board of directors is an honor and a unique opportunity to play a larger role in the industry’s ongoing DEI mission. I look forward to working with FARE members to help transform the industry to better attract, retain and serve diverse employees.”
“IRI is embedding DEI principles in all that we are doing and engaging in deep, active partnerships with key organizations, like FARE, to move our industry forward,” said Wayne Chopus, IRI President and CEO. “Shani’s willingness to step up and accept a leadership role on FARE’s board of directors is a testament to her passion and IRI’s commitment to this critical mission.”
FARE was launched by several leading financial services organizations, industry associations, and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in September 2020. The FARE mission is to increase racial diversity, drive greater equity, and foster inclusion within the financial services industry and the communities served.
The five members of FARE’s board of directors each serve a one-year renewable term.
