A cocktail party completed Lloyd’s hugely successful diversity and inclusion festival, better known as Dive In, late last month in Sydney. And there was much to celebrate. The three-day festival featured a series of events that raised important issues that normally don’t get much scrutiny in any industry. The inaugural Dive In event was held in London last year, but this year it was expanded across 10 countries, including Australia. Sessions were held on gender diversity, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and/or intersex (LGBTI) inclusion, multiculturalism and mental wellbeing. The final event focused on breaking down barriers around physical disability in the workplace. Lloyd’s General Representative in Australia Chris Mackinnon says the festival was a sensational success that brought the industry together. “We’re incredibly pleased with how it’s gone and it’ll be back again next year,” he said.
