Cambridge’s Community of Women met for its annual luncheon during Ignite, Cambridge’s national conference for its independent financial professionals. Cambridge President and CEO, Amy Webber, hosted the event at the Gaylord Rockies Resort in Denver. Webber offered an open Q&A with over 100 women and men financial professionals during lunch, and topics ranged from how to expand the industry with more talented advice professionals to mentoring options, marketing support and client facing services, and Cambridge digital strategies. The W Source was also featured and will participate in an upcoming monthly call series for the Community of Women. Cambridge is planning the 10th anniversary celebration of the Cambridge Community of Women in 2020, and activity will include the Cambridge Women Advisors Forum in Scottsdale this January and the annual luncheon during Cambridge’s Ignite national conference at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in September.
The Cambridge Community of Women is about encouraging more women professionals to engage in the advice industry, not fewer men. The community was formalized in 2011 with the intent of supporting women in the advice industry. Cambridge women advisors are represented in Cambridge’s Leader’s Club, Signature Club, and Premier Club – and hold roles on many Cambridge Advisory Councils. These independent women advisors and independent business owners position Cambridge among the top firms in the industry for the percentage of women advisors in the industry. Cambridge is an RIA and IBD serving independent financial professionals and their investing clients, and Cambridge’s Community of Women is about serving and encouraging more women as financial professionals – not less men. As a firm and a community, the focus is on bringing more women into the advice industry, helping more women move into leadership and mentorship roles, and empowering more women to seize opportunities and thrive as financial professionals.
