The mean gender pay gap at the CII has almost halved in just two years.
It is two years since organisations in the UK started publishing figures on the gender pay gap.
The CII can now report that while the professional body had a gender pay gap of 28% in April 2017, by April 2019 the gap had shrunk to 14.77%.
During the last two years, the CII has re-evaluated roles to address the historic unfairness towards part-time workers; trained managers to recognise and overcome unconscious biases; and encouraged social networks within the organisation to support people as they take on more responsibility.
To help the profession to tackle the gender pay gap, the CII's My Personal Finance Skills programme provides an opportunity to raise the profile of the insurance profession and to encourage both girls and boys to consider the varied roles in insurance and financial services.
