career TRAINING FOR MINORITIES AND WOMEN for
the Insurance and Financial Service Industries
Overview of Affinity’s Insurance Education & Training Apprenticeship
As the demographics of the “typical” client have shifted, the makeup of the insurance professional has begun to change, in an effort to mirror the marketplace. The insurance industry is striving to focus on changing the demographics of insurance personnel. Insurance is a $6.2T industry with numerous positions to fit nearly every personality.
Typically, the insurance industry has presented barriers to diverse populations which include minority, women, and individuals who have not attended college. The Insurance Education and Training Apprenticeship Program has been designed to assist individuals who have a desire to enter the insurance industry under the strategic partnership of Affinity Planning and Insurance Group and The Conley Financial Group, in conjunction with St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment. The program was developed with Affinity Planning and Insurance Group, a non-profit organization developed to address the education of individuals interested in insurance or planning for the future in partnership with The Conley Financial Group, an independent insurance agency.
