Edward Jones recently announced the launch of a firmwide network for female financial advisors – new and veteran – in a pledge to bring more women to the financial advisor role. The network, called WINGS – or Women's Initiative for New Growth Strategies – offers tools, mentorship resources and coaching designed to strengthen and advance female career trajectories at the firm.

"At Edward Jones, more than one-quarter of our recruits are women – but the number should be higher," said Monica Giuseffi, Principal of Financial Advisor Inclusion and Diversity at Edward Jones. "As the dynamics of our workforce and the clients we serve continue to evolve, we must embrace diversity of thought, background and experience across our firm. We are actively working to increase client impact by attracting, retaining and developing talented individuals from various backgrounds, with different life skills to most effectively address their needs."
