IFA Magazine - International Women's Day 2022: How employee benefits can break the bias and boost D&I

International Women’s Day presents an opportunity to consider how some employee benefits can help to #BreakTheBias says Katharine Moxham, Spokesperson, Group Risk Development (GRiD).

International Women's Day (IWD) is “a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality.”

The theme for this year’s IWD day is #BreakTheBias, but, given that the first IWD was held in 1911, one might argue that the fact the event is still running might indicate there’s still much work to be done around equality, diversity and inclusion. Likewise the Equal Pay Act came into being in 1970 but businesses are still reporting gender pay gaps some 50 plus years later. This begs the question: if we can’t treat around 50% of our population equally, what hope is there for equal treatment for smaller minorities?

So how can advisers and employers break the bias, not just for women but for everyone?
