Inspiring change and empowering women in the financial services industry is the mission behind Excell Represent. While the journey towards equality is gradual, the financial world is making strides with the representation of women in wealth management. The number of female CFP professionals rose to 23% in 2023, a small but notable increase from 20% in 2022.
To advance this mission, industry leaders Carson Group, Fidelity Investments, Financial Independence Group and Mariner Wealth Advisors are coming together for the second annual Excell Represent event.
What to expect:
The event will take place on November 15 & 16, 2023, at the Caribe Royal in Orlando, Florida. This year’s conference will feature engaging keynote speakers, interactive panel discussions and immersive workshops tailored to address the unique challenges women in the industry face. Wednesday will also include the Women in Wealth Management Awards ceremony which celebrates the women (and men) making a difference in the profession. There will also be plenty of time for networking and opportunities for one-on-one coaching through our mentor match program.
This year’s lineup of speakers includes Jenny Fleiss, Co-Founder, Rent the Runway and Jetblack, Tina Powell, Chief of Community at Intention.ly, Kate Healy, CEO & Founder of AdvoKate IQ, Lazetta Rainey Braxton, Founder of Lazetta & Associates and Co-CEO of 2050 Wealth Partners, Jenny Johnson, President and CEO, Franklin Resources, Inc. and Carina Diamond, CEO and Founder of Stella Secunda Partners.
