Presenting: Actuaries in Pop Culture Week!

02/26/2018 —

Have you ever noticed mention of an actuary in your favorite television show or in a new summer blockbuster? Since actuarial references are not run-of-the-mill, we think they are worth highlighting. That is why, in conjunction with the countdown to the 2018 Academy Awards, we are celebrating with our very own Actuaries in Pop Culture Week!

Actuaries in Pop Culture Week

All week long, we will be sharing some of the best actuary/pop culture moments from a variety of media on our Facebook and Twitter platforms using the hashtag #ActuariesinPOP.  While sometimes pop culture gets actuaries wrong -- stay tuned for our “How Well Does Hollywood Know Actuaries?” blog post -- we love to watch them try!

Here’s just one example of what’s to come during our week-long look at actuaries in pop culture:

The Actuary, one of the Penguin’s henchmen in the Batman DC Comic series. The Actuary is a mathematical genius who uses his acumen to commit crimes and play a mean poker hand.

We hope you will join us in celebrating #ActuariesinPOP!
