IICF’s Women in Insurance Global Conference

How to build and foster a diverse and inclusive workplace culture within the insurance industry
By Rob Boyce

The only event of its kind, this conference explored how to build and foster a diverse and inclusive workplace culture within the insurance industry.

Key takeaways:

  • The narrative around diversity focused on who and what the industry represents.
  • The insurance industry is navigating uncharted territory with respect to diversity and technology. It is in the process of understanding how to embrace a dynamic workforce spanning  five generations and the influx of more internal and external tech-enabled tools and solutions than ever before—all within a consolidating industry.
  • Today’s workforce expects employers to implement customized benefits solutions, meeting them where they are. These solutions, such as focusing on employees’ well-being in and outside of the workplace, can affect productivity and business outcomes.
  • With technology and other tools able to connect teams through time and space, the next challenge is to help those diverse teams excel, build trust and hold each other accountable.
  • Clients—policyholders and other stakeholders—expect their business partners to operate by the same diverse and inclusive principles they do.
