We are pleased to announce that the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc’s Center for Financial Planning has appointed our own Kathleen McQuiggan to serve as special advisor on gender diversity to help guide its Women’s Initiative (WIN). The initiative is aimed at addressing the shortage of women in the financial planning profession. Women currently make up only 23% of CFP professionals, a number that has not budged in over 10 years.
In her new role, Kathleen’s objective will be to reduce this imbalance by enhancing the Board’s awareness campaigns, dispatching more mentors to promote planning careers and developing new partnerships with groups such as Invest in Girls and Rock the Street.
We are very excited for Kathleen and look forward to supporting her in this new role.
