Registration opened today for Dive In, the festival for diversity and inclusion in insurance, which will take place in late September and focus on the ‘Diversity Dividend’.
Since its launch in 2015 in London, the event organised by Inclusion at Lloyd’s has expanded to around 30 cities around the world. It is now on its third iteration.
“Last year, we had 6000 people. So there were lots of people involved and engaged,” said Dominic Christian, Aon UK’s CEO and chair of Inclusion at Lloyd’s committee.
He said the 2017 festival would cover many issues. “You can get involved in an incredible amount of different topics from LGBT, gender, men’s issues, mental health – huge amount of subjects are covered. Lot of fun, some of it pretty serious as well. So the breadth of activity, the diversity of the Diversity and Inclusion Festival is enormous.”
There will be about 60 different events in 15 countries between 26 and 28 September.
In London, a talk at XL Catlin will discuss why gender equality is good for men; a session at Allianz will explain why we need to mind our language; an event at Aviva will cover the skills gap; and another at Liberty will deal with the parenting transition.
You’ll also have the opportunity to hear rugby league player Keegan Hirst at Lloyd’s, attend a comedy night with Zoe Lyons at Aon, take part in some gin tasting at Miller Insurance, or watch the film Hidden Figures at the Chartered Insurance Institute.
Inclusion at Lloyd’s is a collaboration between the Corporation of Lloyd’s, the International Underwriting Association of London, London & International Insurance Brokers’ Association, and the Lloyd’s Market Association. Post is a media partner.
