In February, the CII alongside Lloyd's, Swiss Re, Willis Towers Watson, AIG, LMG, Link, Aon, XL Catlin, Aviva and Swiss Re, attended the Student Pride event at the University of Westminster.
The purpose was to promote our united profession as diverse and LGBT+ friendly places to work, and celebrate the progress the insurance profession is making in supporting colleagues from diverse communities.
The CII has now partnered with Pride in London to host an event at the Insurance Hall on Friday 18 May 2018, to discuss the journey and value of bringing your whole self to work. Dame Inga Beale will be sharing her personal experience with us. We will also be joined by a prominent trans speaker who will be sharing their journey.
Tali Shlomo, people engagement director at the CII, said: "The need to share personal stories is critical to having an open dialogue and starting to recognise that when you bring your whole self to work the personal and business benefits are greater, as motivation, morale, engagement and productivity increase.
"We hope to see many of our members on 18 May to show their support."
