The FPA will award 38 grants, valued at up to $ 50,000 each, over the next two years, aimed at encouraging more women to pursue careers in financial planning or to “renew, improve and refresh their skills.”
“We welcome the government’s decision to introduce gender-friendly policies and programs, particularly programs that invest in women’s economic empowerment,” said Dante De Gori, Executive Director of the FPA.
“The FPA will use this opportunity to continue supporting, retaining and engaging women in financial planning and the general economic and financial services industries.
The appointment is a major coup for the FPA as it strengthens the strength of the profession in a broader sense and recognizes the leadership of the FPA through its Women in Financial Planning program, which was created to encourage more networking, mentoring and professionalism To create development opportunities specifically for women.
“The increase in the number of women in financial planning will not only expand the profession, it will also meet the unmet counseling needs in Australia, which will help more consumers.
“This announcement is a great responsibility and a great privilege, and we look forward to reviewing applications as soon as they open in the second half of the 2021 calendar year.”
