Collaboration with FEW

The FPA is proud to partner with Financial Executive Women (FEW)
to advance the progression of women in financial planning.

We believe it is vital that we nurture and grow our profession, by supporting those who commit to high professional standards, education and ethics as best we can. As part of this, it is also vital that we attract into our profession those who share the same values.

FEW provides structured career advocacy and support programs to help women progress in their careers through experience, guidance and support. Their programs have been developed to ensure that women have the right support to help them achieve their goals.

Our collaboration with FEW is designed to help foster community, innovation and leadership amongst existing female financial planners, but also encourage more women to choose financial planning as their profession. As part of the collaboration, we will be announcing a program of state-based events very soon – stay tuned!


Through the collaboration, FPA members gain access to some exclusive benefits, including preferential rates for FEW events and FEW membership, and access to the FEW/CareerCEO Advocacy Program.

Financial Executive Women/CareerCEO Advocacy Program

FPA members have access to the FEW/CareerCEO Advocacy Program which has been accredited for 8 CPD hours by the FPA.  This program is designed to get you from A to B. It’s not just about technical skills but also your interpersonal skills. There is more to career success than knowing your craft. You need to be on top of soft skills as well to communicate more engagingly and collaborate more effectively in an increasingly competitive environment.
