Diversity & inclusion

At the very heart of what we do and who we are.

Boards whose trustees have different backgrounds and experience are more likely to encourage debate and to make better decisions. It has never been more important than now for pensions sector to share ideas and good practices to encourage people from outside typical demographics to get involved with pension fund trusteeship.

PMI is looking for partners to help us deliver a programme focusing on raising awareness about the challenges ahead by the medium of webinars, interviews, panel discussions, research and case studies.

Laura Stewart-Smith, Aviva’s Head of Workplace Savings and Retirement, looks at recent research to understand this dilemma – and how we might resolve it – within our present age of ambiguity.
