Dive In for diversity in insurance

The Dive In Festival for Diversity and Inclusion in the insurance industry in Bermuda and around the world wraps up today.

The three-day festival, sponsored by XL Catlin and other companies in the industry, attracted a diverse group of attendees, including 800 people who registered for seven events on the island.

This represented 10 per cent of the festival's global attendees. The aim of the festival is to enable the insurance industry to become fit for the future.

There were sessions on gender myths, unconscious bias and mindfulness, which explored some of the reasons that the insurance industry's workforce is not sufficiently diverse and the ways in which that can be changed.

Gender and generations strategist Christie Hunter-Arscott supported the case for change, uncovering the gender myths that undermine the success of organisational talent and people strategies in a session hosted by XL Catlin
