In August, ANZIIF invited members to participate in its annual survey looking at inclusion in the insurance industry.
More than 600 respondents shared their views to help inform the final report Local Voice, Global Impact: Deep Dive on Inclusion Survey 2020 which was launched during the 2020 Dive In Festival.
The report is written by Dr Jennifer Whelan, one of Australia’s leading experts on inclusion, and is an initiative supported by ANZIIF in partnership with sponsors Liberty Specialty Markets, SURA and Wotton + Kearney.
Last year’s survey showed that men, older people, leaders, and people who can do some or all of their work remotely feel a stronger sense of inclusion than others.
This year’s report revisits those themes — along with the important issue of how COVID-19 has affected our experiences and views on inclusion in the insurance and risk industry.
The findings clearly highlight that inclusion remains an important issue for the insurance industry, particularly given the broader work-related challenges we have all faced during the pandemic.
