Connecting Black Wholesalers Since 2016

Our Vision:​

A financial services industry wholesaler workforce that reflects and exceeds the 12.4% African-American demographic of the United States.  

We are black wholesalers helping each other succeed by:

  • Talking through situations & opportunities; strategizing together.
  • Helping youth break into the field, while avoiding hazards & earning success.
  • We use casual discussion (text, phone, dinners) & formal development to mentor and nurture..
  • If you are Black and a wholesaler or aspiring wholesaler, you are a member of this organization.
  • Networking with industry employers and COIs.
  • Talking candidly with our peers, mentees, and mentors.
AWD is for us by us.
