Our work around Diversity and Inclusion

The Lloyd’s market champions diversity and is leading the field in encouraging open, inclusive cultures across our industry.

Dive In, the global festival for diversity and inclusion in insurance was hosted for the first time in New Zealand in 2018. Employees from the New Zealand insurance industry attended events which were hosted in Auckland and Wellington. The festival returned to New Zealand again in 2019. To learn more about the Dive In festival, please visit the Dive In website.
