WIPN Sponsor Chair Message
WE Inspire. Promote. Network. (WIPN) has had quite a busy quarter with a national rebranding, a new video and the ongoing roll out of the first-of-its -kind research on women in the retirement industry. WIPN continues to garner attention for its proprietary research having been featured in industry publications including PlanAdviser and NAPA.net . The study looks at a range of topics including the value of networking and mentoring, how to create a better work-life balance, a deep dive into compensation, and a discussion of DE&I. Some highlights include:
- Connections yield new opportunities, demonstrated by the finding that networking helped one in three respondents get jobs.
- Work-life balance remains a struggle with one in three women placing it as a top factor that makes them feel successful at work, but it’s an area with the lowest satisfaction in the survey.
- While there are plenty of women who feel content with their salary, over half believe theirs has not kept pace with their experience and responsibilities.
- Diverse employees stay when inclusion is achieved – one in five of the women of color surveyed consider leaving their employer due to company culture.
Let us share our findings with a WIPN sponsor roadshow for your ERG or DEI meetings. If you are interested in having WIPN speak to your firm, please contact me.
