Behave London has been the sponsor of Women In Pensions since day 1. In order to get the ball rolling,weI started the first event with a few bottles of fizz, and we grew from there. Having Behave London sponsor means WIP's we can all get to know each other, in nice bars with good corners for handbags, coats, and a glass of Prosecco to get the new members going! Behave London helps asset managers, consultants and pension funds create interesting research, and boost member engagement, using behavioural science.
I'm Hannah Lewis, the founder of Women In Pensions, I'm aided by Elisabet Atteryd who works with me at Behave London.
The Women in Pensions network came to life over lunch in October 2015, when myself and a lady pensions guru were chatting about how many women there are in pensions industry - and how pleased we are that so many of those are senior figures. Since I started the network, I've been struck by the warmth and support of women in the industry. We've only skipped one month in the two years we've ben running.
Pensions attracts those of us who are interested in the more complex side of human nature, finance and public policy. I think that's why women are making great strides. It combines the people element that we're so good at understanding, and our drive to fix the problems that we see.
With the ever-changing regulation and complexity in the industry, it's a great time for women to join together and strengthen our ties. Please help me connect women who work in pensions. Whether you're involved in policy, law, a trustee, a finance professional, or your role means you want to understand more - everyone is welcome.
I'm always happy to come talk to your company's women's network about how to use behavioural science to boost female salaries and job opportunities, so please do email me it's of interest. firstname.lastname@example.org
