Aspiring Black and Latinx financial planners who participate in the program will have the opportunity to get visibility into different aspects of the financial planning industry, expand their knowledge of personal finance, and gain real-world experience by interning at participating firms. Through the partnership with eMoney, participants will receive access to eMoney Premier—the fintech firm’s most robust planning solution—to gain hands-on experience using financial planning software beginning June 6.
