What You Need to Know
- About 12% of U.S. residents are Black, and 15% are Hispanic or Latino.
- In the insurance industry, 12% of employees are Black and 12% are Hispanic or Latino.
- Just 4.4% of new SOA members are Black, and 3.7% of new members are Hispanic or Latino.
Society of Actuaries members are much more likely to tell the SOA about their gender than to tell the group about their race or ethnicity.
The SOA has included that finding in its first diversity report.
