Cetera Financial Group, one of America’s largest networks of financial professionals, announced its Fall Connect2Impact series will focus on the impact Women and Black advisors can create in their local communities and the financial services profession. The events will take place October 10-12, 2022, in Nashville, Tennessee and are hosted by Cetera’s Advisor Diversity and Inclusion Council. The series comprises two in-person symposiums: The Women’s Impact Network Symposium and The Cetera Black Advisor Community Symposium, which aim to create a positive, collaborative experience to build community, foster connections and engage in peer-to-peer learning. The events are designed by advisors, for advisors.

“Embracing diversity and championing equity are central to Cetera’s culture and philosophy,” said LeAnn Rummel, President and CEO at Cetera Investment Services and executive sponsor of Cetera’s Advisor Diversity and Inclusion Council. “These events represent a core component of a long-term commitment to create a culture and community that embraces diversity, welcomes inclusion and nurtures belonging, both within and outside our organization. We look forward to insightful discussion, collaboration and perspective sharing that we expect will leave attendees recharged and inspired for the future.”

The Women’s Impact Network Symposium will connect, empower, develop and inspire women and allies across Cetera while celebrating women’s leadership. Attendees will gain fresh perspectives on strengthening their practice and breaking through barriers, as well as ignite their passion for the profession and work with others to pay it forward.

The Cetera Black Advisor Community Symposium will connect Black advisors and allies across Cetera to build community and gain unique perspectives from peers about how to strengthen practices. With presentations from dynamic speakers on a wide range of topics, Cetera aims to spotlight and celebrate Black advisor success stories across the Cetera communities.
