Lloyd’s is committed to developing ethnic minority talent in the Lloyd’s market as part of a wider five-part action plan. We know that ethnic minority talent is under-represented across the Lloyd’s market and particularly in management and leadership positions.
Shockingly, only 6% of the total top management positions in the UK are held by individuals from ethnic minority groups. This small number means that unfortunately many role models simply aren’t visible, and finding leaders who reflect your identity is challenging. This is why, hearing and sharing lived experiences, and meeting inspirational role models is so key to the career progression of talented ethnic minority individuals – accompanied with effective sponsorship and support from managers and their organisations. These are all things this programme provides, alongside peer-to-peer support and a network built on understanding and empowerment.
Delegates taking the Accelerate programme will be able to:
- Gain key personal skills development related to key areas of self-reflection, managing career and authentic leadership
- Gain access to senior sponsors from their own organisation
- Create key networks with other black and minority ethnic talent from across the Lloyd’s market – as well as with a wider Lloyd’s leadership network post-programme
