The murder of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement have brought global attention to the effects of systemic racism and prompted individuals and businesses to imagine ways to better include and support communities of color. The insurance industry, in which Blacks make up 11.1% of the insurance workforce, is part of this re-examination. This Insurance Journal webinar will focus on minorities in the insurance industry, how the industry can be more inclusive for people of color and steps companies can take to be an ally to Black communities.

  1. Why industries including insurance need to increase diversity
  2. How individuals and companies can elevate the conversation in a way that leads to change
  3. What some companies are doing to be an ally to communities of color
  4. How industry leaders can take action within their own companies and the industry in general
  5. Where do we go from here?
