How you can help improve financial wellbeing in society.
Women and girls in the UK today have significantly lower financial security than men. This is largely as a result of historical and societal role stereotypes that affect career and study choices as well as caring responsibility. All this leads to men's average lifetime earnings being around 80% higher than women.
BUT YOU CAN HELP CHANGE THAT
Insuring Women's Futures has more than 1,000 ambassadors signed up to help raise awareness of women's risks in life -- and critically, how to avoid or mitigate them.
We are running a series of events and webinars to give insurance professionals and ambassadors the tools and guidance they need to talk to their friends, families and even colleagues about the moments that matter in women's lives, as well as helpful checklists for what anyone can do to #MakeEachMomentCount
TALK TO TEN
If each of our 1,000 ambassadors talk to just ten people each, we can empower 10,000 women and girls to become more engaged in their financial futures. And if they talk to a further 10 each-¦ that's just the start.
And it is not just about women and girls. We also need to inform and inspire men and boys to understand how together we can improve all of our financial lives.
This initiative is all part of the launch of our Insuring Women's Futures manifesto proposals in November. Coinciding with Talk Money week -- a nationwide initiative led by the Money and Pensions Service to raise financial awareness and engagement -- we want to create a real buzz around financial wellbeing.
Join us to find out how you can be a part of Talk 2 10K. Go to insuringwomensfutures.co.uk/events to find out about upcoming events and links to the webinar.
Once the events are sold out, the webinar will be published so members can watch and listen on demand.
