This series takes a fresh, sometimes challenging, look at some of the issues facing the actuarial profession and society
The ‘think’ series aims to promote debate on topics across the spectrum of actuarial work and beyond. It looks to provide a platform for members and stakeholders to share views that may differ from the IFoA’s ‘house’ view.
Through this, we hope to challenge the status quo within the profession, question orthodoxy, and shine a light on complex or under-examined issues. At its heart, the series is about stimulating discussion and dialogue to help tackle issues from a different perspective.
Our second publication in the ‘think’ series has been authored by Dr Vina Theodorakopoulou, a behavioural economist.
Dr Theodorakopoulou is a passionate advocate for diversity of thought in the workplace and serves as a Supervisory Board member for GAIN (Group for Autism, Insurance, Investment and Neurodiversity). GAIN has a mission to spark a radical improvement in the employment prospects of neurodivergent people in the financial sector.
‘Much to GAIN’ highlights the benefits of a neurodiverse workplace for actuarial organisations, and what steps can be taken to enable neurodiverse employees to thrive.
