Home / International / Industry gears up for annual Dive In
3 August 2020
Registration has opened for next month’s Dive In festival, which will have over 90 diversity and inclusion events hosted in more than 30 countries including Australia.
The September 22-24 festival will take place virtually because of the pandemic.
This year’s festival theme, “Local Voice, Global Impact”, aims to highlight the pivotal role local voices play in fostering changes across the world.
Racial inequality issues stemming from the Black Lives Matter movement, flexible working “allyship”, gender identity, white privilege and social mobility are some of the topics that will be addressed during the three-day festival.
“This year’s Dive In Festival is shaping up to have the biggest global impact to date,” Lloyd’s Market Association CEO Sheila Cameron said.
“For the first time, festival-goers can attend events in countries all around the world, regardless of their own geography. That is pretty exciting.
“To be able to listen to the experience and impact of different topics all around the world is a truly unique experience and something the insurance industry should be very proud of.”
Australia has participated in every Dive In since 2016. The festival was started in 2015 in London and has enjoyed rapid growth, with the global insurance industry embracing the cause.
