Stats: Why This Matters Now

Women compose 51% of the U.S. population, and not only outnumber men in graduating from college, but also represent the majority of the workforce.

Despite this statistic, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that women represent just 31% of U.S. financial advisors.

According to the CFP Board of Standards, currently, only 23% of Certified Financial Planners are women.

Women in financial services hold only 19% of senior level positions, 14% of board seats and 2% of CEO roles as reported in a PWC May, 2013 study.

Cheryl Nash, President of Investment Services, Fiserv, is leading the initiative to inspire, educate and engage women with dedicated content through digital channels and experiential programs.

The handouts were extremely helpful! I learn by looking at materials in front of me and not just watching a video, so having them was great! The tests were not too hard but not too easy and covered a good range of what was talked about in each class. Very helpful and educational!
