Women's Advocacy Circles

Women's Advisory Circle Group

Currently, only 23% of CFP ® in the United States are women. The Women's Advocacy Circles were created in order to work with women in the financial services industry to provide skills required to meet the demands in the profession. The goal is for the women to attend sessions to increase knowledge in the professions culture and unspoken rules that can be critical to success. The women are then given tools to develop a high performing advisory circle and are placed in groups or circles to communicate their personal and career goals, challenges, and successes on a regular basis.
