Taking a holistic approach

Diversity and inclusion is not an add-on for Markel, it’s a core part of the business. Sue Davies, Markel’s chief human resources officer, sets out the company’s goals and its all-round approach to D&I.

For Sue Davies, chief human resources officer at Markel, it’s extremely important that a company shows in both words and actions that diversity and inclusion (D&I) are truly important to it. And according to Davies, Markel has worked hard to do both.

The re/insurer has formed a global D&I steering committee comprising senior leaders, which has worked to create a vision and strategy and now ensures this strategy is being put into action.

On the US side, there are now seven employee resource groups across different areas. Internationally, Markel operates a broader inclusion network.
