Throughout the pandemic, Aviva continued to pay colleagues, regardless of hours worked, supporting parents balancing work with childcare and home-schooling. And, as people return to offices, Danny has championed the female agenda in Aviva and externally; encouraging business to consider the potential future impact of hybrid working on carers and especially women. Aviva’s D&I strategy includes many initiatives supporting women. From its Equal Parental Leave policy and advertising all roles with flexible working to including diversity targets in Executive reward and monthly reporting on gender diversity metrics. Danny sponsors and champions several initiatives including Aviva’s approach to domestic abuse for colleagues and customers, Aviva’s Menopause Support Group, the introduction of the Peppy menopause app for colleagues and their partners, and also its Pride Network. She is a mentor for the 30% Club, and was, until recently the Co-Executive Sponsor of the Aviva Carer’s Community – a global network of predominantly women who support each other to balance working with caring responsibilities.
