August 5, 2019

The Dive in Festival, a re/insurance industry initiative, is taking place in Bermuda and numerous other locations around the world from September 24 to 26. This is the fourth year that the Bermuda re/insurance industry has participated in the festival.

A spokesperson said, “The Dive In Festival, which promotes diversity and inclusion in the global re/insurance sector, marks a milestone as it reaches its fifth year, with a record number of countries expected to host events. Events will be spread across three days from 24th – 26th September in 33 countries.

“In Bermuda, Dive In 2019 is supported by the Association of Bermuda International Companies, the Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers, AIG, AXA XL, Chubb, Kennedys, Liberty Specialty Markets, RenaissanceRe and Willis Towers Watson. This is the fourth year that the Bermuda re/insurance industry has participated in the Dive In Festival.”

ABIR Chairman and Axis Capital President and CEO, Albert Benchimol said: “The re/insurance industry is making progress for greater diversity and inclusive action and, more importantly, there is a recognition that more work is necessary. On behalf of Bermuda’s leading insurers and reinsurers, we are proud to support the 2019 Dive In Festival in its work to support an increasingly inclusive re/insurance industry.”

The spokesperson said, “The 2019 festival builds on last year’s campaign of developing ‘awareness into action’. This year’s theme, #inclusionimpact, invites attendees to consider ways to make an impact. Since its inception in 2015, the Dive In Festival has sought to accelerate the progress of D&I within the global insurance industry, highlighting the business case for diverse and inclusive workplaces, providing practical ideas and inspiration for how to bring about positive change.

“Event registration is now live and re/insurance professionals in Bermuda will be able to browse and sign up for local events under ‘The Americas’ section on the Dive In website or via the new app, available on Android or Apple.

“The Festival’s Bermuda line-up includes seven events in varying formats including panel discussions with topical experts, interactive workshops and keynote addresses from both international and local executives. The full list and detailed descriptions can be found via the Dive In Festival’s new website and the Dive In Festival app.

“The Dive In Festival website also includes a curated video learning library of D&I content from the last four Dive In festivals, a history of the festival, and learning resources from previous years.
