Founded in 2016, AWD consists of black wholesalers representing all companies, channels, regions, and products in the financial services industry. AWD’s mission is: 1) strengthen and grow the community of black wholesalers we have built, 2) aid in the ongoing professional development of all black wholesalers, 3) continue leveraging and scaling up our combined networks to facilitate career advancement for all black wholesalers, and 4) recruit, train, and welcome black students, job seekers, and career changers into our thriving black wholesaler community.
“The difference between a moment and a movement is sacrifice. AWD embodies the collective sacrifice of hundreds of black wholesalers helping each other get better and advance. AWD also helps black college students embark on, then thrive in, this lucrative and fulfilling career called financial services wholesaling.” –Ron Williams, ChFC, AWD Academic Outreach Committee Chairman
“Financial services wholesaling, like many financial services careers, is woefully underrepresented by black people, especially black women. AWD is squarely focused on the outcome we seek: black representation in financial services wholesaling that reflects, at minimum, the demographics of the United States at large.” –Marlōn Hall, CFS, AWD Founder
