We will promote diversity in our membership and at the IFoA by recognising the particular contribution that can be made by individuals with a wide range of backgrounds, knowledge and experience.
"As a profession, we can and should recognise diversity to make us stronger."
Nick Salter, Immediate Past President
In his Presidential Address, Nick Salter, Immediate Past President, identified three pillars of diversity as being important to us as a profession
- diversity within our membership
- diversity of the actuarial skill set
- diversifying into new areas or sectors of work.
By focusing our efforts on these three areas, we can best support our members and help ensure the long term sustainability of our profession
It is hoped that our work in this area, initiated by Nick and continued by our current President, Fiona Morrison, under her presidential theme 'Promote' will push the profession forward and help it thrive in the future.
"There is a crucial role for professional bodies, such as the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, to promote diversity as part of our duty to act in the public interest".
Fiona Morrison, President
