Supporting a Diverse Profession
The Society of Actuaries believes that it best fulfills its mission when it is diverse and inclusive of all individuals, and that acceptance of diverse perspectives, cultures and backgrounds will attract the best talent and ensure the overall inclusivity of the actuarial profession.
To ensure a more diverse, equal and inclusive profession, the SOA is supporting a variety of organizations that advocate and help actuarial students, teachers and members around the world, including:
The International Association of Black Actuaries is a professional and student member organization whose mission is to contribute to an increase in the number of black actuaries and to influence the successful career development, civic growth and achievement of black actuaries.
The IABA’s mission is to be the world's leading actuarial organization dedicated to influencing diversity by developing and recognizing the achievement of black actuaries.
The Organization of Latino Actuaries (OLA) was founded in 2017 to increase the number of Latino actuaries by promoting the profession and providing guidance, mentorship and networking opportunities. Donations to OLA can change the future of a Latino actuarial student. $200 will pay for exam materials, $250 will pay for an actuarial exam and $500 will help take students to events. Any contribution helps!
