Marijo Dluzak, a local financial advisor affiliated with FSC Securities Corporation, recently attended Advisor Group’s 12th annual W Forum, hosted February 7 – 9 in New Orleans. Since 2007, the conference has convened wealth management industry thought leaders to promote the success of female advisors over three days of networking and educational seminars.

The 2018 W Forum brought together more than 400 attendees in support of Advisor Group’s mission to empower female advisors across all generations and experience levels.

Keynote speakers included Geena Davis, award-winning actress, producer, and founder of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media; and Joi Gordon, CEO of Dress for Success Worldwide. Attendees also listened to keynote speeches from Valerie Brown, Advisor Group executive chairman; and Jamie Price, president and CEO of the firm.

The theme of this year’s event, “Focus your Power,” centered around empowering women to explore their unique skillsets and make a tangible difference in clients’ lives. Conference attendees donated clothing to nonprofit organization Dress for Success, which provides low-income women with professional attire for job interviews. Dress for Success also works with clients to help them develop the confidence and skills needed to achieve success in the business world, and ultimately break the cycle of poverty.

“Each year, I leave the W Forum feeling excited and inspired by the thought-provoking panel discussions, highly educational breakout sessions and inspiring keynote speeches. This year’s forum addressed gender-specific topics such as the longevity crisis many women will face, and the need for more women to serve as mentors,” said Marijo Dluzak “I’m thrilled to act on the insights I learned at the W Forum, ensuring I continue to provide informed and timely advice to my clients.”
