CALI supports initiatives to increase the participation of women in the life insurance industry, including women working in life insurers, the financial advice profession and the superannuation industry.
CALI members report to the Workplace Gender Equity Agency (WGEA) on six Gender Equality Indicators each year. CALI strongly supports WGEA’s aims of promoting and improving gender equality in the workplace and welcomes the publication of the industry’s gender equality performance.
Life insurers also know that more can be done to ensure women have access to suitable, affordable life insurance that protects them and their families when they need it most. For example, CALI is focused on working on reforms to financial advice to improve women’s access to life insurance advice, as well as working to better understand how life insurance can support specific women’s health and disability issues.
