Dive In Festival 2020 - Same Storm / Different Boat


24/09/2020 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM EDT


Webinar (from Miami, USA)



We are very pleased to once again be a global partner of Dive in, the international festival for diversity and inclusion in insurance.

As a local festival partner in Miami Kennedys has been involved in the organisation of this discussion on how all of our diverse generational groups are working through industry challenges in 2020. Being in Miami, the theme of storms resonates like no other. As we approach the topic of diversity and inclusion in the insurance industry, I would liken it to a hurricane. It has been swirling, we are aware of it, and we know that we need to prepare by raising awareness, and convincing those around us to do the same for the well-being of our community as a whole.

Have we lost ground?  Will we?  What can we do to weather the storm?  How do we come out on the other side with our course in tact?  How can we weather the 2 types of storms  one swirling for years, and those that showed up seemingly without warning?  How can we offer help to those whose boats aren’t as seaworthy as they should have been, when our own boats have taken on unexpected damage?

Take Aways:

  • How professional associations can support diversity in recruitment, retention and professional development for emerging talent
  • How the events of 2020 have affected their growth, networks, and relationships
  • Advice they would give to the more seasoned generations on how to retain diverse talent in their organizations.

If you would like to ‘attend’, you must register your attendance on the Dive In Festival events portal.
