Dive In, the first Lloyd’s market-wide festival for diversity and inclusion in insurance was held in September 2015. The brainchild of Inclusion@ Lloyd’s, the four day event attracted more than 1,700 people to its free sessions and engaged its audience on the business case for diversity and inclusion.
Well known faces such as Gok Wan, John Barnes MBE, and Sophie Christiansen OBE spoke about implementing positive changes in the workplace and the business case for D&I.
Dive In’s Instagram coverage was displayed in the Lloyd’s foyer and the festival even trended two points ahead of the Labour Party Conference on Twitter on September 29. The audience profile of print, online and radio coverage meant news of the festival reached over 16 million people.
Support for Dive In came from across the Lloyd’s market, with sponsorship from 33 companies, including AIG, Aon, Hiscox, Marsh, Willis and Zurich. The message to all those who attended was clear: diversity and inclusion are good for business.
