We are proud to be a signatory of the UK’s Women in Finance Charter and have put practices and programs in place to advance and support women’s leadership at our company, within the insurance industry, and across financial services. In addition, we are committed to increasing women in UK ExCo senior roles to 35% by September 2021.
Diverse Candidate Slate Requirement: This policy encourages recruiters and hiring managers to think differently about how they find and interview candidates so we attract the best and the brightest, not just the most familiar. We are at 80% and climbing.
Unconscious Bias and Behavioral-based Interviewing: We have introduced guidelines to help hiring managers to be aware of unconscious personal and cultural biases and how they may prejudice objectivity and exclude well-qualified candidates. We are developing an UB sessions specifically for our underwriting colleagues.
Inclusive Leadership Training: With a goal of 100% participation, 84% of senior leaders have completed this training designed to raise awareness of D&I, establish common definitions and assist leaders to reflect on personal biases and behaviours.
