Being a woman shouldn’t be a risk

All over the world women are disproportionately affected by risks. Either because they’re insufficiently protected or because they are overly exposed to risks. We have a responsibility to do more, to play our part in driving change and help move the world forward.

We have a responsibility to do more.
Here's what we're doing.

Women's health

83% of women experiencing women's health issues are impacted financiallyGo to footnote 1

That's why we're engaging with parliament and working with businesses to better support the health of female employees, fuelled by findings from our latest women’s health research.

Women at work

Women provide £50bn of unpaid care for adultsGo to footnote 4

That's why we support our employees who are carers with flexible working arrangements, a commitment to additional paid leave and a dedicated carers employee network.

Women in business

There has been a growing number of women business owners over the last 10 years in the UKGo to footnote 5

We’re working with inspirational female founders through the AXA Startup Angel competition which gives entrepreneurs the chance to turn their business dreams into reality without bias.

For a chance to win money to help launch or fund your business, mentoring and business insurance for a year, be the first to hear about the 2024 AXA Startup Angel competition.

Women in sport

At AXA, we support and give visibility to female athletes that inspire us and our future generations.

Whether it’s working alongside our Brand Ambassador and GB Paralympian Amy Conroy, or our Liverpool Football Club partnership, we want to champion women’s sport and inspire others.

We’re proud to be the Official Training Partner of the Liverpool FC Women’s team as well as the men’s.

Amy chats to some of our AXA Confidence Champions to understand what challenges they have overcome to build big and bright careers at AXA UK.

At AXA, we're all about action. Gender stereotypes? Not on our watch! Join us in amplifying our voice alongside Liverpool FC Women’s and Men’s teams. Let's make our voices heard together!

Paralympian and AXA Brand Ambassador, Amy Conroy, knows all about challenges, champions and chasing dreams.

Future You

Life is full of risks. We believe the future shouldn’t be one of them.
