The IFoA has launched a new Diversity Action Group (DAG) volunteer group to allow members to contribute easily to this important area of our work.
DAG is a Member Interest Group which works collaboratively with the IFoA Leadership team to support the IFoA in matters of diversity in the IFoA and in the actuarial profession. They do this by leading work-streams to deliver resources; campaigns, initiatives, events and original research.
By volunteering to join the DAG volunteer group you will receive information about these activities in the planning stage and have the opportunity to participate and make a difference in the areas which resonate with you.
DAG chair, Chika Aghadiuno, said: “I encourage all members of the IFoA to get involved – diversity is an issue for everyone and your experience, perspective and skills, whatever they may be, will be of real value.
“The volunteer group we are launching is an easy way to support the work of the Diversity Action Group, allowing you to pick and choose where and how you contribute and to add your voice. This is a platform to build a community to discuss, question, learn and to help us make progress.
“I look forward to engaging with as many of you as possible through this initiative.”
The new ‘My volunteering’ resource allows you to tell us what topics are of interest to you, so that we can notify you when opportunities arise.
‘My Volunteering’ has been designed to make it easier for members to hear about volunteer opportunities that might be of interest, encouraging more members to get involved and boosting the diversity of our volunteer community.
You can opt out at any time, putting you in control, and allowing us to keep you informed.
