Risks in life

The risk, insurance and financial professions can be powerful enablers in addressing some of the societal challenges that women face.

Our goal

To understand the personal and professional risks women face across society and their experience of using insurance to help manage these, to enable improvements in the way the profession supports women as clients and policyholders.

What we will do

  • Collaborate with women’s organisations and charities to gain a greater understanding of women’s risks and needs, seeking qualitative guidance from leading experts and surveying members to produce quantitative insight
  • Make a positive contribution to society through lending support to women’s causes eg, through supporting women’s charities at IWF events
