About BLX Internship
In the wake of George Floyd’s death, and in the spirit of the Black Lives Matter movement, the BLatinX Internship Program (BLX) was born. Its goal is to provide an opportunity for aspiring Black and Latinx financial planners to obtain an internship at a fee-only financial planning firm.
The financial planning industry is woefully underrepresented from a diversity standpoint.
In fact, 73% of Certified Financial Planners (CFP) are white males. According to the CFP Board and the US Census Bureau, only 3.8% of Certified Financial Planner professionals are Black or Latinx, while those populations make up 31.9% of the U.S population. It is projected that by 2045, the United States population will make up a majority of persons of color.
“This (diversity) is the future of our profession and we believe that in order to move the financial planning profession forward, we must be more representative of the population of our country.” – Shawn Tydlaska, Co-Founder of BLX and Ballast Point Financial Planning
