April 13, 2021 by Susan Rupe
It’s not difficult to attract women to the financial services industry, said Carrie Sayre, president of Women in Insurance and Financial Services. But it’s the development and advancement of women in which the industry fails.
Sayre, who is chief talent officer of 6M Group, spoke Tuesday as part of NAIFA Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Impact Week.
She said women make up 13% of producers and 18% of leaders in the industry, a percentage that hasn’t changed much over the past 30 years.
