Northwestern Mutual today announced its participation in several national conferences that will team the company with a group of diverse organizations, including the National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA).

The conferences are part of the largest recruiting effort in the company's 155 years of operation and will connect with thousands of professionals and career-seekers through sponsorships and in-person activities.

The first of the conferences will occur this week (June 13-16), during the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA) in Phoenix.

"We're seeing growing consumer demand for financial security, so we're vigorously seeking and training financial professionals to help us keep pace," said Steven Mannebach, vice president of field growth and development at Northwestern Mutual. "These sponsorships will enable Northwestern Mutual to reach thousands of professionals seeking to develop either careers or financial plans with an industry leader."

Northwestern Mutual in Milwaukee, Wisc., is a life insurance company that helps clients achieve financial security. As a mutual company with $1.2 trillion of life insurance protection in force, Northwestern Mutual has no shareholders.
