AIG is once again a proud Gold Sponsor of Dive In, an annual series of events hosted by the insurance industry to promote diverse and inclusive workplaces. The 2019 Dive In festival highlights the business case for diversity and inclusion, and provides practical ideas for bringing about positive change. This year’s theme of #inclusionimpact encourages participants to find ways to make and measure impact.
From September 24 to 26, AIG’s global Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) will host more than 30 events as part of the festival. This will include sessions on generational inclusion and promoting gender equality in insurance. At AIG, more than 23 percent of the workforce participates in 139 volunteer-led ERGs in 35 countries.
Building a Better Company
“I am proud that AIG has made diversity and inclusion a cornerstone of how we are building a better, growing company that will last for the next 100 years,” AIG CEO Brian Duperreault says. “The diversity of our workforce is one of AIG’s greatest assets, and we continue to actively cultivate a culture of inclusion at all levels.”
Dive In began in London in 2015 with a group of firms in the Lloyd’s Market and has grown to include some of the largest insurance companies, brokers, underwriters and associated service providers. This year, it will reach more than 30 countries and more than 60 cities.
The three-day festival recognizes that the insurance industry needs to foster its reputation as great employer in order to attract the very best talent and keep pace with the rate of change. This means incorporating dimensions of diversity, such as gender identity, faith, age, mental health and physical impairments.
As Gold Sponsors, AIG submitted a feature in the Dive In Brochure and CEO Brian Duperreault discusses the importance of respect and how diversity and inclusion is at the core of the Insurance industry in the “Business Case for D&I” CEO video series.
