Lloyd's launches programme to develop future female leaders

Fri 05 Oct 2018

Lloyd’s has announced the launch of a new pilot programme, Lloyd’s Advance, aimed at developing future female leaders within the Lloyd’s Corporation and the market.

Like many financial service firms, insurance shows an equal number of men and women at the entry levels, however this representation does not translate at the senior levels. Hence, the need to take targeted action. As part of our commitment to closing the gender pay gap, Lloyd’s Advance aims to improve the pipeline of senior women through a modular-based development programme, targeted at female employees identified by their line managers as future leaders.

Lloyd’s Advance will provide targeted development, access to experts and role models and on-going networking opportunities aimed at supporting their future careers within the Corporation and the market.

The Lloyd’s Advance pilot programme will run for six months starting from January 2019, with an initial cohort of 15 women. Each organisation wishing to nominate a female identified as a future leader will also put forward a sponsor for her and a mentor that will be matched to another female in the programme.

The application process for the pilot programme launching in January has now closed. For more information, please email
