Partnership Furthers Mission of Bridging the Diversity Gap Within the Financial Services Industry
ATLANTA, GA – February 3, 2023 - OneDigital, the nation’s leading insurance brokerage, financial services, and HR consulting firm, announced a strategic partnership with Changing How Individuals Prosper (CHIP).

The strategic partnership with CHIP will help OneDigital learn, advocate, and further the shared mission of better reflecting the communities we serve.

CHIP is a B2B financial services marketplace that aims to help individuals easily find financial professionals of color. Our goal is to ensure that consumers of financial products, i.e., retirement plans, investments, and insurance, and those with estate planning needs have a platform to build their financial team while feeling empowered with their money. CHIP (Changing How Individuals Prosper) started due to the lack of visibility and representation of financial professionals of color. Our mission is to bridge the gap between consumers of financial products and financial professionals of color while ensuring increased visibility of Black, Hispanic & Latinx professionals to help close the racial wealth gap in America. We intend to ensure people feel seen, heard, and empowered with their money. We want to help retain and grow generational wealth and build trust for financial professionals of color, especially in underestimated communities. We want the future of the financial industry to be inclusive and reflective of our world.
