Diversity and Inclusion – Not just buzzwords any more

Life insurance sales have been flat, if not declining, in most mature markets around the world. There are many theories to explain why insurance premiums cannot even keep up with GDP growth. What is clear is that the insurance industry has been painfully slow in hiring minorities and women into senior positions. Diversity breeds innovation, and the insurance industry is in desperate need on innovation.


Learn how the first female CEO of Lloyd’s of London helped to tackle the issues of diversity, inclusion and mental health and how this can improve the insurance industry moving forward.
