Under Sarah’s leadership, inclusive diversity is now a fundamental part of Aviva’s strategy. She led the introduction of Aviva’s new global parental leave policy, 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 advocated continually to help others take a step in the same direction. She also sponsored the Aviva Balance Community, regularly talking at events and holding ‘listening lunches’ to encourage a bottoms up engagement and approach. 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. Additionally, Sarah has championed Aviva’s sponsorship of the Women of the Future Awards, and the Asian Women of the Future awards. Sarah mentors and coaches a number of talented women across industry.
