SmartBrief Launches Publication With Robert Toigo Foundation

Biweekly e-brief supports ongoing diversity in the finance industry

Washington, D.C., July 11, 2013 – When evaluating efforts to encourage and promote a more diverse community in the finance industry, few organizations can compare to the Robert Toigo Foundation (RTF). Today, through a partnership with leading digital publisher SmartBrief, Inc., the foundation expands into the digital space with an e-newsletter. SmartBrief is proud to help support the RTF’s programs and initiatives with a brand-new, twice-monthly e-brief targeting stakeholders, supporters, educators, students, and financial professionals.

The Robert Toigo Foundation SmartBrief is a bi-weekly resource providing exclusively tailored news and intelligence for RTF subscribers, delivered straight to their inboxes. From the latest programs and training to the most up-to-date tools and job listings, the brief brings relevant information together from multiple, trusted sources to give members an added advantage in their careers. 

Founded in 1989, the Robert Toigo Foundation is committed to bringing increased diversity to the finance industry. As a catalyst for change, RTF’s programs inspire minority students who might not otherwise have considered finance as their career and provide them with the leadership training, mentoring, tuition assistance and lifelong support they need as they pursue their MBA and launch their finance careers and beyond. 

RTF is the only diversity leadership development program focused on the field of finance. Through a combination of individualized support to aspiring minority finance professionals and active engagement as a partner with industry, RTF helps ensure that the next generation of finance leaders is able to flourish. RTF’s partnership with SmartBrief adds to the support, news, and resources RTF currently provides for these students, their educators, and the professionals who may mentor or hire them someday. 

The Robert Toigo Foundation SmartBrief joins a wide range of renowned, industry and association-focused e-newsletters providing carefully curated business intelligence for senior executives, thought leaders, and industry professionals across more than 180 trade associations, professional societies, nonprofits and corporate entities. 

Edited by Charles Tomlinson, who is responsible for a range of SmartBrief newsletters covering the financial industry, the Robert Toigo Foundation SmartBrief is initially expected to reach nearly 8,700 subscribers, providing the information and insight they need to improve their skills and expand their knowledge base – the Smart way.
