Allianz Chief Operating Officer, Stephanie Smith will be one of the speakers at the Dive in Festival.
Dive In is helping insurance get fit for the future, highlighting the business case for diverse and inclusive workplaces and providing practical ideas and inspiration for how to bring about positive change.
Following the success of the first Dive In festival in London in 2015, Dive In 2016 is bigger and better with participation from the companies market and an international programme of events.
Between 27-29 September 2016, more than 50 events will take place over 3 days in 16 cities across 4 continents in Australia, Bermuda, Canada, China, France, Ireland, Singapore, Switzerland, UK and the USA. We believe this makes Dive In the only international, sector-wide, concurrent D&I event of its kind anywhere in the world!
From navigating today’s global, multi-generational workplace to making the most of your time with your family, the importance of inclusive leadership and inspiring stories from our sporting heroes, there is something for everyone. Now is the time to play your part and Dive In.
Dive In is an initiative of [email protected]’s, a collaboration between the Corporation of Lloyd’s, IUA, LIIBA, and the Lloyd’s Market Association, whose aim is to pool resources, widen perspectives and share best practice in diversity and inclusion to effect change faster.
