Registration is now open for Dive In, the insurance industry's longstanding festival promoting diversity and inclusion. Taking place Sept. 21-23, this year's festival will be delivered in a hybrid format, consisting of both virtual and physical events in more than 30 countries.
Building upon the success of last year's virtual festival, which attracted a record-breaking 30,000 participants, the hybrid format allows attendees to join from anywhere in the world, facilitating conversations about diversity and inclusion on a global scale.
With the global pandemic bringing diversity and inclusion into sharp focus, this year's theme of Active Allyship seeks to educate and empower those in positions of privilege to understand how to be active allies and champions for all. Attendees will be urged to turn their commitments into actions when supporting underrepresented groups and take responsibility for creating an inclusive workplace.
Full details about events and speakers will be available on the Dive In website and later to rewatch on the Videoflex platform.
In the run up to this year's festival, attendees are invited to participate in Dive In's Active Allyship video and social media campaign, sharing how they show active allyship and what active allyship means to them. The videos will be aired on Dive In social media channels in August.
An array of Global Festival Partners are once again supporting this year's festival, including: AIG, Aon, Arch, Aviva, AXA, AXIS, Chubb, CNA, DLA Piper, Dual, Gallagher, Howden, Kennedys, Liberty Mutual, Lloyd's, Markel, Marsh & Guy Carpenter, MS Amlin, RenaissanceRe, RMS, Tokio Marine Kiln, Travelers, and Willis Towers Watson.
