Dive In Festival rallies insurance leaders

On the heels of a successful inaugural Dive In Festival for Diversity & Inclusion in Insurance, held in London in 2015, the Sydney insurance community has come together to bring Dive In to Sydney.

The festival will run across ten locations in Asia Pacific, Europe and North America, from 27 to 29 September 2016, and will feature over 45 events which will take place  in 16 cities globally.  

This year the themes covered at the global Dive In Festival include amongst others multicultural diversity, gender diversity, LGBTI  and workability, which covers both physical and mental health.

Sydney will be the first city to kick off the festival with platinum sponsor XL Catlin and event co-sponsors Aon and Norton Rose Fulbright holding a gender diversity discussion panel followed by networking drinks.

Day two will see Willis Towers Watson host an event focusing on people who are LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and/or intersex) in the workplace, our industry and our community, and, GSA Insurance Brokers and JLT will host an event celebrating Multiculturalism in Australia accompanied by an exclusive viewing of Martin Sharp’s Artwork.

On Day three, DUAL Australia and co-sponsor Marsh will host a cooking demonstration at QBE Australia’s head office, incorporating discussion about the importance of mental health awareness, and, to close the festival, Lloyd’s Australia will host an ‘expo’ style networking function focusing on physical disabilities.

All events are open to everyone who works in the insurance industry to attend free of charge with prior registration via the website or app for iPhone and Android.

Details and registration for all events can be found here.
