Under Sarah’s leadership, inclusive diversity is now a fundamental part of Aviva’s company strategy. She was key to Aviva’s new group-wide parental leave policy, launched last year, offering equal parental leave to men and women regardless of gender, sexual orientation or how an individual becomes a parent. Since the launch, she has been vocal on the benefits when speaking to the press, peers and Aviva partners. She encouraged Mark Wilson, Group CEO, to sign up to the Executive Committee commitment outlined by the 30% Club. She also advocated publishing their Gender Pay Gap Reporting early, and sponsors the Aviva Balance Community, regularly talking at events and holding ‘listening lunches ‘ with members in all the different markets. A regular voice on the topic, she has recently spoken to senior leaders at Changeboard, Vote 100, and SAID Business School, as well as at Sheffield Academy through Speakers for Schools. She is a member of HRH Women Network Forum, the 30% Club global steering committee, and regularly holds breakfast meetings to encourage CEOs to sign up to the 30% Club commitment. Additionally, Sarah champions Aviva’s sponsorship of the Women of the Future Awards, and the Asian Women of the Future awards.
