After a successful first year, with more than 2000 registered attendees, the festival is broadening its audience mandate beyond the Lloyd’s market to include the wider companies market in 2016. As well as increased participation among insurers with a London presence, the festival will also expand across the UK and internationally. Dive In branded events will be hosted in cities including Beijing, Sydney, Paris and Chicago.
This year there will be more events, more capacity and additional themes including multi-generational workplaces and families and carers. Volunteers are encouraged to come forward if they have experience of working in any relevant network groups to help programme the content and organise events. Groups already formed but looking to refresh membership include Women in Insurance, LGBT, Multi-cultural diversity and Workability, which covers both physical and mental health.
A video learning library of D&I content from the first Dive In festival is now available on the web site at www.diveinfestival.com.
