Wellbeing at Engineering in cooperation with Athena SWAN & Engineering Diversity

Speaker: Clare Farrukh, Senior Research Associate at Division E

What: Please come and hear about this initiative to secure the financial future of the next generation, which looks at the key risks (12 Perils and Pitfalls) and 6 Moments that Matter in the lives of British women.

Background Clare Farrukh went to a talk recently as part of the University Wellbeing Week. It was about raising awareness of the key decision points in our lives where women can act to make their lives more financially secure. Jane Portas, a co-founder of Insuring Women’s Futures and a Partner at PwC, shared the highlights of her ground-breaking research into the financial lives of women in the UK. Jane’s findings cover the trends in British people’s risks in life and how this impacts our financial resilience, identifying the key risks (Perils and Pitfalls) facing women and the cumulative effect of these on women’s and all of our long term financial security. The work reflects on changes in our working and family lives, and our health and wellbeing, and consider society’s financial preparedness.

In this talk Clare will introduce, and we will discuss, 6 Moments that Matter where positive interventions may be made to improve women’s and all of our financial resilience, by women and men in society, employers, business, financial services, policymakers and the third sector.

You can find a copy of a new Financial Wellbeing Guide that has been created on the IWF Website; https://www.insuringwomensfutures.co.uk.

This is designed to help consumers understand the Moments that Matter and for the first time, some simple tips that anyone can take to get control of their financial future.
