Dive In festival helps insurers attract the best talent, Lloyd’s says – Local – Insurance News

The insurance industry’s Dive In diversity and inclusion festival, now in its eighth year, helps create an environment that attracts the best talent from a wide range of backgrounds, says Lloyd.

Registration is now open for the 2022 festival, which centers around the theme of Building Resilient Cultures. More than 150 events will take place in at least 40 countries on September 27-29.

“We are deeply committed to building an integrated marketplace – one that welcomes and represents our diverse customers around the world, is innovative and empowers people,” said Lloyd’s Head of Culture Mark Lomas.

Dive In, originally developed by Lloyd’s, “shines the spotlight” on what has been achieved so far, as well as the work that still needs to be done, he says.

“It gives us an opportunity to reflect on our progress, educate ourselves and learn new skills to find a place that attracts the most talented people,” Lomas said.

Local hosts for this month’s Dive In sessions are former Australian Player of the Year and AFL star Adam Goodes, Australian Women’s Rugby 7s player and Olympic gold medalist Ellia Green, and former Socceroo Craig Foster.
