The Actuarial Mentoring Programme (AMP) is a cross-company mentoring initiative that is designed to improve diversity and inclusion within the actuarial profession. Run by Moving Ahead, the programme was launched in 2017 with the support of the IFoA and sponsorship from Pension Insurance Corporation plc.
Participating organisations put forward mentees from groups who are under-represented at senior levels in industry, and mentors from leadership positions. Pairs are matched across different companies.
Here, we share some highlights of the 2021–2022 cohort – the fifth to complete the programme – to show the impact that the AMP is having.
