ABI add its name to new sector wide pledge on inclusivity

The Association of British Insurers is among 50 insurers, brokers and industry bodies signing up to a new sector-wide Inclusive Behaviours Pledge this morning.

Spearheaded by the CEOs of Zurich UK and Lloyd’s of London – Tulsi Naidu and Inga Beale – the pledge aims to address all forms of potential discrimination in the workplace and sets out a framework of desired behaviours for leaders, their employees and for interactions with suppliers and customers.

There’s more about the pledge on a new dedicated website, www.inclusiveinsurancepledge.co.uk

ABI Director General Huw Evans said:

Huw Evans“The insurance sector is on a steep path towards being a properly diverse and inclusive industry. Along with the wider financial services industry it has a lot to do, but good progress is being made thanks to initiatives such as the Women in Finance Charter and strong commitment from industry leaders. The fact this inclusive behaviours pledge has been devised by people at the very top of the industry shows how strong the drive is for change and I am pleased to be adding my signature on behalf of the ABI as an employer.”
