Diahann Lassus Named One Of 50 Distinguished Women In Wealth Management
NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ- Diahann W. Lassus, CFP®, CPA/PFS and President of Lassus Wherley, was named one of 50 Distinguished Women in Wealth Management in the April 2008 issue of Wealth Manager Magazine. “It is not merely a list of who has the most assets under management or who has the highest production numbers. Some, for example, are on this list because of less-tangible contributions they've made to women in the profession, such as serving on committees or mentoring. However, they all have at least one thing in common: they are role models for the next generation of women advisors.”-The Editors.
In the same issue of Wealth Manager, Diahann Lassus was quoted in an article titled “Cherchez les Femmes!” that discussed why there aren't more women advisors and what to do about it. Diahann believes that outreach needs to come from the profession and needs to start earlier. “Somehow,” she says, “we have to figure out how to reach the adults in high schools-the guidance counselors and teachers.”
