Dive In Festival 2021 - Reversing the Addiction Crisis in America (US)
We are very pleased to once again be a global partner of Dive in, the international festival for diversity and inclusion in insurance.
Speakers: Laura Davidson, AON; Gary Mendell, Shatterproof
Join Gary Mendell, a former hospitality executive who pivoted his career to become the Founder and CEO of Shatterproof in honor of his son who lost his battle with addiction, for a discussion about the addiction crisis in America. The conversation will range from the importance of de-stigmatizing substance use disorders, driving legislative change, and the roles corporations, including insurers, can play when it comes to providing quality treatment. He’ll also discuss how you can be an #ActiveAlly by understanding what stigmatizing language is and how to avoid it. Gary shows his #ActiveAllyship every day through the support his organization provides to families and individuals coping with substance use disorders.
