Diverse & Inclusive Champions exhibition

For the 2023 Dive In festival, on diversity and inclusion in insurance, Lloyd’s has created an exhibition of Diverse & Inclusive Champions. This features six people from the Lloyd’s market who are role models of inclusive practices over decades. The six people were chosen through recommendations and Lloyd’s commissioned the artist, Franklyn Rodgers to make portraits reflective of their individual journeys. The portraits will be on display in the Old Library of the Lloyd’s building from 26 September 2023.

Meet the artist

Franklyn Rodgers, is an award-winning artist who uses the medium of photography, critical thinking and research to expand the possibilities of portraiture to communicate our shared identities and collective understanding. He has worked collaboratively with each of our D&I Champions, in order to create a dialogue which allows each sitter to ‘stand in their truth’. His empowering works show each of our role models in and around the Lloyd’s building. 

The portraits will sit next to some of our illustrious Chairman, including John Nelson. It was during his time as Chairman (2011-2017) that the Dive In festival was instigated in 2015, through the Lloyd’s market steering group Inclusion@Lloyd’s. Dive In is now a global movement to develop inclusive workplace cultures in the insurance sector. There is also Lord Levene of Portsoken, K.B.E. who was Chairman of Lloyd's 2002 – 2011, making him the longest serving Chairman for 125 years. Proudly Jewish, his faith has underpinned his successful career and  Sir Henry Mance (1913-1981), Chairman of Lloyd’s 1969 – 1972 who was responsible for admitting women to Lloyd’s. 

The closing event of Dive In will feature the exhibition with a talk by the artist and sitters.
