Our Mission is Simple

Females and Finance™ is focused on building a better landscape of professionals.

In 2018, Sheryl Hickerson founded Females and Finance™ with a simple mission - to create a more inclusive landscape for financial service professionals. 

We now serve more than 3,000 professionals just a few years later and are laser-focused on giving our members the most user-friendly and professional platform to host networking, training, and education events focused on business development, practice enhancement, and entrepreneurship support. The topics in our community are varied, and our contributors come from all landscapes in the financial services and financial technology professions.

We invite you to connect and learn how to become a part of our community.

2021 Females and Finance™ Advisory Board

René Nourse, CFP®

After 25 years as a financial advisor in the corporate world, René left a major firm in June 2012 to launch Urban Wealth Management Group. 

René is a frequent guest speaker and contributor on the topic of women and finance, and also recognized as a trailblazer and financial expert. Given the horrific year we have experienced in 2020, now is a critical time to highlight the importance of helping women reach their financial goals, since women and women of color have been hit so hard by this pandemic. René's firm’s mission is to encourage and assist women to create the lifestyle they desire and deserve.
