About AWD – The Association for Wholesaling Diversity

AWD is a 501(c)(3) non profit staffed by black financial services wholesaler volunteers. Founded in 2016, AWD continuously executes on four primary initiatives: 1) strengthen and grow the community of black wholesalers we have built, 2) aid in the ongoing professional development of black wholesalers, 3) continue leveraging and scaling up our combined networks to facilitate career advancement for black wholesalers, and 4) recruit, train, and welcome black students and career changers into our thriving black wholesaler community.

We have been helping employers in the wholesaling space build and strengthen diverse wholesaler workforces since 2016. AWD recruits, trains, mentors, and advocates for black wholesalers in every firm, product, channel, and region of North America. Through partnerships with corporate sponsors and select recruiting firms, AWD provides an array of resources and directly facilitates recruiting of diverse candidates at all levels of distribution. AWD actively partners with financial services firms who recognize the need to improve diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging within their organizations.

About the 6th National Assembly

2022's Assembly theme, “Growth and Gratitude,” promotes the active role all AWD members play in continued education, advocacy, and commitment to improve outcomes for black financial services wholesalers. 2022's Conference theme, "Stronger Together," speaks to our 1st year welcoming corporate partners to our annual gathering. Come for fellowship, wholesaling best practices, and mentorship.
