This month, the IFoA launches its diversity web pages. These provide information about our diversity goals, initiatives and events, as well as useful resources. Nick Salter, immediate past-president, brought the topic to the forefront with his presidential theme of diversity, and the IFoA hopes that its work in this area will push the profession forward and help it thrive in the future.
The latest of a series of IFoA events focusing on diversity was held on 14 April. The IFoA joined forces with Morton Fraser LLP to co-host a joint panel event entitled 'Leading by Example: Diversity in Business'. The panel comprised IFoA president Fiona Morrison; Linda Urquhart OBE, chair of Morton Fraser; Lady Susan Rice CBE; and Tanya Castell, chair of Changing the Chemistry and lay chair of the IFoA Quality Assurance Scheme sub-committee. The discussions covered a breadth of issues relating to diversity of all kinds in business. Members can view a video of the event on the IFoA's website.
If you are keen to get involved, why not join the IFoA's member-led Diversity Advisory Group or connect with your peers via the new online diversity community.
