Women’s Initiative



What is the FPA Austin Women’s Initiative?  It is our newest program of educational networking events designed to promote gender diversity within the financial planning industry.  The goal of the program is twofold: 1) support and equip women with resources and best practices to help them with career advancement, skills training, and client management, and 2) create greater awareness and understanding about the different challenges and biases that women face in the workplace.  If you are interested in learning more about this initiative, please contact us at [email protected].
