The IFoA Executive Leadership team drive this forward through collaboration with the internal Diversity, Equity and Inclusion committee for employees and the Diversity Action Group (DAG), a member interest group open to all members of the IFoA.
This allows us to listen to and learn from individuals and groups and enables us to focus on delivering targeted initiatives, and support, to make a difference.
All employees/members are welcome to be part of their respective group and encouraged to join the conversation. This two-way collaboration allows us to gain insight, feedback and suggestions. It is central to our approach and at the heart of our decision making.
To enable us to deliver this support to our members, we work in partnership with our volunteers.
“The IFoA has broken ground in diversity in the last ten years, with the first female presidents and the first African president. And I am very proud to be the first Asian president. Sometimes diversity is an issue of redressing injustice. But let us be in no doubt, it is also about sustainability of the profession. We have to be diverse in our mindsets, outlook and perspectives – reflecting the communities we serve – and always with a common purpose, only then we can thrive as a profession."
Tan Suee Chieh, IFoA President
Guided by our members
Our work on diversity is supported by the Diversity Action Group (DAG), comprised of volunteer IFoA members.
