WiPN Announces Retirement Plan Industry Study of Gender Workplace Issues
The Women in Pensions Network (WiPN), a nonprofit organization with a network of more than 5,500 subscribers in the retirement plan industry, has partnered with leading research firm Escalent and research sponsors T. Rowe Price and Resources Investment Advisors, a One Digital Company to study the progress of women in the retirement plan industry. Exploring the extent to which women continue to be underpaid and underrepresented in the retirement plan industry, the groundbreaking proprietary research survey will focus on women’s experiences, attitudes, and compensation in the industry.
“WiPN serves a need in the retirement plan industry to promote the professional growth and advancement of women and we believe an in-depth exploration of how to bring more women into the field, what keeps women from joining or advancing, how different classes of women experience the industry, and how compensation differs or grows are prime areas of study,” says Daniella Moiseyev, WiPN’s President. “We are honored to work with Escalent, T. Rowe Price and One Digital to develop this important, groundbreaking initiative.” Results of the survey will be released in the first quarter of 2021.
