Aegon Insights Women United on March 8, 2017

March 12, 2017

On March 8th, Aegon Insights gathered female colleagues in all offices to celebrate International Women's Day (IWD) over a morning tea gathering.

The celebration began with all the offices dialed in to a teleconference. Amy Cheung and Phoebe Leung from the regional team led in the celebration, sharing interesting statistics from the United Nations Women and Aegon Retirement Readiness (ARR) survey 2016 findings. The insight gathered from the ARR survey on women's readiness to retire were also shared to Aegon Insights' LinkedIn followers, generating more awareness.

In line with the theme of IWD 2017 - #BeBoldforchange, a mentorship program for women in Aegon Insights was revealed thereafter. Some female colleagues in the senior level position have volunteered to be mentors for the other women in the organization to encourage and provide an avenue for women to have one-to-one advice on career, coaching or support.

The women in each market continued the celebration discussing "What makes them proud to be a woman?" over cakes, coffee and tea locally.

The women were encouraged to show their support for the day by wearing purple, the official color of IWD.
