Bermuda insurance community to participate in Dive In festival


The global insurance community has come together for the Dive In Festival for Diversity and Inclusion, which will take place in countries across the world including Bermuda.

The festival will be touring in 16 locations across the world, including Australia, Bermuda, Canada, China, France, Ireland, Singapore, Switzerland, and various cities in the UK and the US.

Dive In will take place from September 27 to 29, 2016 and its core message is that diversity and inclusion are good for business with the title ‘Risk & Opportunity: Don’t get left behind!’ stressing the fact that global competitiveness is at stake as insurance sets out its stall to attract and retain top talent.

Organisers said that this new global presence makes Dive In the only international, sector-wide, concurrent diversity and inclusion event of its kind anywhere in the world, with a potential audience of over 1 million insurance sector leaders and employees.

Over 20 events will take place in London with more across the UK in Bristol, Chatham, Manchester and York. An expert line-up of speakers, among them, broadcasters Clare Balding and Gok Wan, chief executive officer (CEO) of Lloyd’s, Inga Beale, rugby player Ben Cohen, consultant and author, Alistair Campbell and Brian Dupperault, CEO and President of Hamilton Insurance Group will explore why diversity and inclusion are vital for business success and how to change attitudes to ensure insurance is fit for the future.
