 September 28, 2021

Willis Towers Watson Retirement Director, Helen Gilchrist, has been shortlisted in the Women in Pensions Awards 2021 ‘Role Model of the Year’ category for her achievement.

"I'm very proud to be among the finalists for 'Role Model of the Year' category in the Women in Pensions Awards. To have the support of my colleagues after a year of just doing my best to balance it all, is really humbling," said Helen.

Celebrating the achievements of women

The Women in Pensions Awards celebrate the achievements of women in a sector where they are still under-represented, and also individuals and firms who have supported and encouraged women to fulfil their potential in the workplace.

These awards are not about men versus women, or whether a particular gender is more suited to a career or role in pensions; they are simply about celebrating and recognising the achievements of women in a sector where they are currently under-represented.

Having access to a broader pool of talent can help to create a more sustainable pensions industry for all and encouraging gender diversity is a crucial step to accomplishing this. In highlighting the achievements of women already in the sector, as well as recognising individuals of either gender who help to maximise the potential of women or are striving to get a better gender balance, the Women in Pensions Awards will help to inspire more women to work in what is an exciting and dynamic sector.

The Women in Pensions Awards believe that initiatives that aim to inspire and campaign for greater representation of women both in pensions and on trustee boards have a key role to play in supporting gender diversity. The Women in Pensions Awards complement these initiatives by shining a spotlight on the work of inspirational and ground-breaking women in the pensions sector.
