The Financial Planning Association (FPA) has reiterated its commitment to encouraging higher female representation in the industry, ahead of its inaugural Professionals Congress.
As part of the congress, the FPA are holding its Women in Finance Breakfast to support female planners and provide a forum to discuss the challenges they face in the industry.
“Female financial planners represent 32 per cent of our new membership this year and while it is positive to see that the female representation is growing each year, these numbers are not satisfactory and much needs to be done to close the gap between genders in financial planning, and the wider financial services,” FPA chief executive Mark Rantall said.
“In order for Australians for all walks of life to receive appropriate advice, there needs to be equal representation across genders and all demographics.”
“The Women in Finance breakfast is one way we aim to support our female community of planners in their careers.”
As part of the event magazine editor Deborah Thomas will be speaking at the breakfast as well as attendees having the opportunity to network with some of the industry’s leading female financial planners.
The Women in Finance Breakfast takes place on Friday October 17 and registrations are currently open.
