Moneyweave® Academy Qualified Experts To fulfill our vision and mission, we are building a connected network of Qualified Experts and engaged, passionate supporters who firmly believe in our cause of helping women become more financially secure. Through the career experience and technical expertise of our Qualified Experts, we connect high-quality educational content with how women in the United States live their lives today. There are hundreds of certifications across the financial, tax and legal professions. Research reveals that most lack academic rigor and enforcement. This “alphabet soup” of designations is confusing and often disserves the public. We require our experts to have advanced education and board certifications including possessing – at minimum – these credentials: Certified Financial Planner® (CFP®), Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and Juris Doctor. Each Qualified Expert certifies annually that he or she acts as a fiduciary, is in good standing with certifying and regulatory bodies and will upload our pledge. Last but not least, our experts have demonstrated strong interest and expertise in specifically helping women address complex financial, tax and legal planning challenges they often face at disproportionate rates to men. We require our experts to meet the following strict, stringent and unambiguous qualifications: Upholding a common code of ethics and conduct that includes: Demonstrable commitment to improving the financial security of American women and girls.
