NAPFA的多样性,股本 & 包含项目
The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) is the country’s leading professional association of Fee-Only financial advisors—highly trained professionals who are committed to working in the best interests of those they serve.
Through its long-range planning process, NAPFA identified encouraging and promoting inclusivity in the field as a strategic imperative for the association. This led to the creation of the Diversity & 包含项目 and the formation of a steering committee to steward any associated activities.
This Initiative operates under the following directives.
Our mission is to create a more inclusive membership by becoming a beacon for diversity within the financial planning profession by building and strengthening relationships between financial planning professionals and the diverse 人口s they serve.
Our vision is to become the standard for diverse advisors. We will do so by creating and promoting programs for underserved professionals to participate in career development and enrichment opportunities and championing their success within the profession and the communities they live in.

NAPFA多样性、股票 & 包含工具包
The Initiative has compiled a 多样性、股票 & 包含工具包, a resource meant to help NAPFA members and their firms make meaningful change in the DEI space. While conversations and education around DEI is a crucial step to improving understanding, it's clear that without action, true progress cannot be achieved. This toolkit has both a written guide and a series of videos designed to help NAPFA members take action and access resources.

Many organizations continue to do the important work of diversifying the financial planning profession and making it a more inclusive community for everyone. NAPFA encourages you to explore some of the programs and resources that other groups are doing.
Center for 财务规划
As consumer demand for financial advice grows, it is imperative that the financial planning profession work toward expanding and diversifying the ranks of financial planning professionals who can meet the needs of increasingly diverse consumers. However, based on self-reported data provided to CFP Board, less than 3.82人中的5%,000 CFP® professionals in the United States are Black or Latino, which is significantly less than the representation of Blacks and Latinos in the U.S. 人口.
To address this challenge and its root causes, the CFP Board Center for 财务规划 commissioned a comprehensive research study in 2017 to identify the barriers to racial and ethnic diversity in the financial planning profession. 回顾一下这项研究 点击这里.
