In this second episode in our series on diversity in pensions, Samantha Brown Head of Employment, Pensions and Incentives at Herbert Smith Freehills, is joined by Tracy Blackwell, CEO of Pension Insurance Corporation (PIC) and they discuss:

• the purpose of finance
• the importance of businesses having a purpose and how this impacts on culture and diversity
• how PIC has defined its own purpose and culture, and
• how PIC promotes diversity within its workforce.

This discussion on the purpose of finance builds on PIC’s report on this topic published in March 2017.
