Kennedys supports diversity and inclusion as global partner of Dive In Festival 2018

We were proud to be the official gold-level global partner of this year’s Inclusion@Lloyd’s Dive In Festival.

While the core, three-day festival is over for another year, some final fringe events continue to take place around the world, aimed at engaging and educating the sector on the importance of diversity and inclusion in insurance by providing people with understanding, knowledge and the tools to implement positive change.

Dive In has again continued to help insurance get fit for the future, highlighting the business case for diverse and inclusive workplaces and providing practical ideas and inspiration for how to bring about improvement. With more than 9,000 people attending in excess of 115 events in over 50 cities in 27 countries around the world, this year's festival has been an incredible success, and the energy of the festival will be harnessed to encourage action across the sector.

We were very pleased to be able to be directly involved in a number of events around the world, including ones that saw partners Alex Potts, Suzanne Liversidge and Joanna Young speaking in Bermuda, London and New York respectively. In addition to hosting some events, we also published a series of interviews with our Legal Apprentices to support this year’s theme, #time4inclusion, and the start of Dive In Festival’s two-year campaign, Awareness into Action.

After three years of raising awareness of the business case for diversity and inclusion, the global movement is now looking to harness the energy of previous years to encourage action throughout the sector.

Although the festival is over for another year, the promotion of diversity and inclusion in the insurance sector remains front and centre.

Kennedys is very proud to have been able to support and participate in such an important, and successful, initiative. See you at Dive In 2019!
