An effective D&I strategy is becoming more than just a desirable agenda item for re/insurers—many are realising the tangible benefits it can foster in terms of innovation, creativity, and the bottom line. Intelligent Insurer reports.
Re/insurers must embrace robust diversity and inclusion (D&I) policies if they are to remain relevant to their customers and it will, ultimately, also boost their bottom lines.
That was one of the main takeaways from a panel discussion “Unconscious bias: how to avoid missing diverse talent”. The discussion took place on Intelligent Insurer’s Re/insurance Lounge, an online platform where interviews and panel discussions are available on demand.
The event featured Rebecca Bole, head of industry engagement, CyberCube; Natasha Scotland Courcy, SVP, general counsel, co-chief operating officer, Athene Life Re, and board member of Bermuda International Long Term Insurers and Reinsurers; Matthew Connell, director of policy and public affairs, Chartered Insurance Institute (CII); Lara Pedley, UK director, ISC Group; and Michelle Johnson, chief talent & diversity officer, Palomar.
