Diversifying the Financial Planning Landscape with Rita Cheng

Here at the minority money podcast, I really wanted to highlight that we minorities have a place in the financial planning landscape, and Rita Cheng, my guest for today, believes deeply in this as well. No matter your ethnicity or gender, she believes that we are all capable of achieving financial wellness and resilience.

Join me and Rita, certified financial planner and founder of Blue Ocean Global Wealth, as we discuss diversity in the financial planning industry, and what we can do to encourage it. Being that of mixed-race background, Rita knows firsthand what it’s like to stand out in this industry as both a woman, a mother, and a minority. Her goal is to grow the financial planning industry into an inclusive one that welcomes new and diverse people.
