If you haven’t seen it already, take a look at the article on the new CFP mentorship program for women in Investment News.
I already signed up last week to be a mentor under the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards’ new WIN-to-WIN program, which will pair women studying to be certified financial planners with experienced practitioners.
The program aims to address the shortage of women in the industry.
“The fact remains that only 23% of CFP professionals are women,” said Marilyn Mohrman-Gillis, executive director of the CFP Board’s Center for Financial Planning. “The financial planning profession needs to reflect the population it serves.”
