The Center for Due Diligence is starting a vehicle that women in the retirement plans industry can use for business and professional development.

The CFDD, Western Springs, Ill., says women also can use the new Women In Pensions Networking Group to provide and get mentoring and engage in informal social networking.

More than 100 women in the retirement plans industry already have joined, organizers report.

Financial professionals interested in joining the group can e-mail the CFDD at cfdd@thecfdd.com for more information.
