The Committee on Racial Diversity (CORD) is a committee of the American Finance Association whose mission is to increase the racial diversity of the finance profession. We are striving to increase awareness of issues related to racial diversity, enhance career development for faculty and students, and expand the pipeline of students from under­represented racial groups.
