Here’s what the first class of Certified Financial Planners (CFPs) looked like in 1973.

Check out the wide ties and plaid jackets! It’s got “That 70’s Show” written all over it.

Here’s another way to tell it’s the 70’s: there are only 2 female faces among the 42 newly licensed CFPs. (That’s less than 5%; we’re at about 22% now).

We’ve definitely come a long way. But there’s still a very long way to go to better represent the people we serve!
