20 May 2019
The Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance is seeking industry input on a research project around unconscious bias in insurance organisations.
The results will be presented as part of Lloyd’s fifth Dive In Festival, which encourages diversity in the global insurance industry.
Law firm Wotton + Kearney and underwriting agency group Sura, in conjunction with the institute, will host an event at the festival in September aimed at gaining better understanding of unconscious bias and how to address it.
Unconscious bias can affect attitudes spanning race, gender, appearance, age, wealth and much more. It can undermine recruiting and employee development, destabilising organisations.
An anonymous questionnaire, called Deep Dive Research Survey: Unconscious Bias, can be completed here.
