CII to check impact of chartered firms’ diversity policies

CII to check impact of chartered firms’ diversity policies

The CII has committed to making sure the diversity and inclusion policies that Chartered firms have in place are making a positive difference to the makeup of the profession.

Last summer, the CII unveiled five actions it would take to ensure Corporate Chartered status is modern, relevant and diverse; and to ensure Chartered firms have a positive social impact and contribute to the development of the wider profession.

One of the five actions saw the CII introduce a requirement for Chartered firms to have a diversity and inclusion policy from July 2019 onwards.

To assist insurance and financial advice firms, the CII issued guidance on what approaches businesses could take to establish an inclusive culture that leads to fair outcomes and promotes respect and equality. More than 900 Chartered firms that seek to retain their Chartered status in 2020 have confirmed they will have a diversity and inclusion policy in place by the end of this year.

To make sure these policies are delivering positive change for the profession and wider society, the CII has today confirmed that from 2021, it will request examples of the impact the approaches are having on Chartered firms when they wish to renew their status.
