For humankind, the profession and the IFoA, 2020-21 is the worst of times and the best of times.
COVID-19 brings the precarity of the human race and deep unfairness within our systems into sharp relief. And enables us to see how, on occasions, the human spirit can soar.
The pandemic also gave us all at the IFoA and the profession a chance to see with clarity what our strategic priorities should be. And made the case for the change as set out in our VSMD strategy and commitment to sustainability more clearly than any protracted debate could have done. And enable us to see how, on occasions, we are capable of acting with courage, clarity and humanity.
In the context of the profession and the IFoA’s commitment to our public purpose, the way we act, do and behave will define this generation of actuaries. Our journey to reinvent the profession and transform the IFoA has begun. We must not waver.
Stay Inspired. Believe. Make a Difference.
