Working with UK charity National Numeracy, TP ICAP is proud to be the founding partner of the UK's inaugural #NumberConfidenceWeek, from 2 to 6 November. Maths anxiety affects many people in the UK and acts as a barrier to understanding and working with numbers. Together with National Numeracy, we'll be publishing a short report 'The Confidence Gap: Women & Number Confidence' which examines the extent of the number confidence gap in the UK and how this affects women's careers. Our research found 78% of young British women would not consider a career in financial services, with nearly half saying a lack of confidence with numbers is a reason for this. As an industry we want to improve #genderdiversity as well as broader #socialmobility.
We are delighted to announce Joanna Nader, Group Head of Strategy, TP ICAP, has been listed in the Financial News 100 Most Influential Women in European Finance 2020. #finance #strategy #womeninfinance #FN100
Today marks #WorldMentalHealthDay and we want to make sure our colleagues feel equipped and supported to deal with any problems they may face. Mental health is important to us, and so we are launching a number of initiatives including on-going webinars focusing on mental health, as well as tips and practical advice to encourage us all to take greater care. Each and every one of us plays an important role in ensuring our teammates feel supported. Nurturing those relationships has never been more important. #mentalhealthawareness #wellbeing #endthestigma
