The Pensions Regulator has today published a blog setting out its ongoing work towards creating a fairer and more inclusive culture across the pensions industry.
In the blog, Executive Director of Policy, Analysis and Advice, David Fairs says: “As the UK regulator of workplace pensions and as an employer, we have been on this journey for some time, but we know there is much more to do.
“Crucial to bringing about lasting change is measuring our progress and ensuring we are transparent about the impact our equality, diversity and inclusion work is having.
“We can see from our engagement with industry that while change is not easy and may take time, many trustees are showing increasing willingness to embrace diversity and inclusion. They appreciate how crucial these priorities are to ensuring that decision making reflects the needs of all savers.
“We know we have a long way to go both within our organisation and across the industry to improve EDI. We also know progress is not always as fast as we’d like and that it is not always in a straight line. However, we are committed to leading by example and we welcome the growing commitment and momentum across industry to embed a culture of diversity and inclusion, so that all savers are protected.”
