The Association for Wholesaling Diversity (AWD) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit providing training, certification and job placement to black college students considering internships & careers in the lucrative financial services intermediary distribution industry (wholesaling). AWD is NOT a recruiting firm as we are NOT compensated in any way for applicant placement. Our donors contribute to our mission, irrespective of applicant placement. AWD is NOT an employer. All staff are volunteers who are currently employed in the wholesaling industry. AWD simply post roles on behalf of our corporate donors and hosts virtual events providing complimentary training & certification to students interested in the wholesaling industry. These efforts are part of our overall mission to increase awareness about financial services wholesaling among black college students. There are no costs to students for any AWD program.
Following acceptance of a job offer within the financial services wholesaling industry, AWD provides, at no cost, ongoing training, mentorship and a thriving community of over 600 black professionals currently working within the wholesaling industry.
Our mission to increase black representation in our industry which currently stands at less than 1%.
