IGI video: Closing the gap - tackling gender inequality
There has never been a more inspiring time for women to step up and recognise their potential. Gender inequality has taken centre stage with events like the Women’s FIFA World Cup breaking viewer records, and female misrepresentation in the insurance and reinsurance sectors finally being taken seriously.
In June 2019, International General Insurance (IGI) sponsored and took part in Equal Playing Field’s (EPF) Festival of Football, which highlighted gender disparity in sport by breaking the Guinness World Record for the largest number of players in a single game. Aaida Abu-Jaber, Head of PR and Communications and IGI’s Diversity and Inclusion Champion, talks about tackling inequality in the workplace.
