The WIBF Accelerating Change Together (ACT) Research Programme is a cross industry initiative to drive policy change which will better support and retain women working in financial services.

PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

This is a four-year research programme, led by WIBF, and conducted by the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and the Wisdom Council, a financial services consumer insight and engagement specialist.

Year one of the ACT Research Programme will explore the barriers and opportunities for women in the mid term of their careers. This will be achieved through new primary research with men and women working in financial services.

The results will be published in a report including actionable recommendations and interventions.
