Equity & Inclusion: Advancing diverse teams from mid-level to management and beyond

Diversity is often the focus of those hiring at the entry level, but the benefits to actuarial teams take more effort to unlock. In this session, panelists will illustrate the concepts of "equity" vs "equality" and describe how inclusive and equitable practices can help to develop future leaders from diverse backgrounds. We will share recommendations from the International Association of Black Actuaries’ for developing and advancing diverse leaders. We will also hear a recruiter’s perspective on the challenges that mid-level actuaries experience when seeking advancement opportunities.
