Do you work with a woman who is a trailblazer within pensions? Or perhaps you know a woman whose contribution to a project or task has gone above and beyond? Perhaps there is an inspiring newcomer to the industry in your midst, or a dynamic lawyer, administrator, or mentor who deserves to be recognised at the highest level.
If so, PP is ready to celebrate their achievements at the 5th annual Women in Pensions Awards, where the industry comes together to recognise the accomplishments of the dynamic talent among us.
The Women in Pensions Awards are all about appreciating the most remarkable achievements of women in the sector as they push to make our industry better and brighter every year.
Having access to a broader pool of talent can help to create a more sustainable pensions industry for all; encouraging the very highest level of gender diversity is a crucial step to accomplishing this. In highlighting the achievements of women already in the sector, the Women in Pensions Awards will help to inspire more women to lend their skills and experience to the rewarding industry of pensions.
The Women in Pensions Awards firmly believes that initiatives that aim to inspire and campaign for greater representation of women both in pensions and on trustee boards have a key role to play in supporting gender diversity. We believe the Women in Pensions Awards can complement these initiatives by shining a spotlight on the work of inspirational and ground-breaking women in the pensions sector.
Professional Pensions is committed to the journey in becoming more sustainable. By using the guidelines set out by Ecovadis, we will be working towards the accreditation. The goal is to reduce paper consumption across events and improve recycling rates, curb food waste and alter menus with an aim to include locally sourced, organic produce. We have also committed to deliver carbon offsetting at events wherever possible and provide delegates with accessible venues. We will be closely evaluating each event and considering how we can improve in the following areas; energy, transport, water usage, recycling, economic and local environment/community.
Incisive Media have partnered with Ecosphere+ to ensure all our remaining greenhouse gas emissions are offset. Working with Ecosphere+, we calculate the emissions from all our events, including those from event operations, venues and delegates. We then purchase the equivalent number of carbon offset credits to counter-act our activities. These credits are supporting the protection of vital rainforest in Peru, by funding conservation work and creating sustainable sources of income for locals to minimise incentives for deforestation.
