The CII is hosting a series of diversity and inclusion events with local institutes in September, celebrating the benefits of diversity and inclusion for the profession during the Dive In festival.
As part of the Dive In festival, which promotes diversity and inclusion in the global insurance sector, the CII and three local institutes will host events exploring ways to make the insurance profession more inclusive. The festival itself will be spread across three days from 24 to 26 September, in 33 countries.
With the Insurance Institute of Cardiff, the CII will host an event titled, The Power of Inclusion, on 24 September 2019 at the Holiday Inn in Cardiff. The event will feature key speaker Nathalie McGloin, the first female with a spinal cord injury to be granted a racing licence in the UK.
On 25 September, the Insurance Society of Edinburgh and the CII will run an event at Ghillie Dhu, Edinburgh, featuring Josh Littlejohn, co-founder of Social Bite, a social enterprise with a mission to eradicate homelessness in the country.
On 26 September, the Insurance Institute of Ipswich, Suffolk and North Essex and the CII will host an interview with footballer Kelly Smith, who was spotted by Arsenal Ladies Football Club scouts at the age of 16.
CII members can sign up to attend these events from 11 July onwards via the website: www.diveinfestival.com
The 2019 event asks festival-goers to consider ways to make an impact, under this year's theme of #inclusionimpact
