NAPFA Women's Initiative


The NAPFA Women’s Initiative strives to attract, support, educate, and develop women as leaders within the financial advisory profession and to raise the awareness of the need for more female advisors. We work toward this mission by building a community of women advisors, providing programs at NAPFA events, attracting media attention through articles in financial publications, and providing networking, advocacy, and mentorship opportunities to women.
