Evidence was especially strong in the Institute’s setting up of a Diversity Action Group, and its production of a selection of good practice guides. Our final DiBA report recognised those areas where diversity had been duly integrated, as well as those where improvements could be made and opportunities seized.
Chartered Insurance Institute
Enhancing member inclusion and employee perception at the world’s leading professional body for financial services
The Chartered Insurance Institute first approached us to provide an external assessment of their diversity performance. Their aim was to demonstrate CII’s commitment to meeting the diverse needs of employees, and responding to the diversity of its membership.
The DiBA diversity accreditation was the first of several projects we’ve delivered at the Chartered Insurance Institute.
Our other projects with the Institute have included:
- Designing a half-day taster event introducing unconscious bias in decision-making
- Advising on CII’s Diversity and Inclusion Strategy
- Consulting on inclusive leadership
- Designing a series of immersive actor-based workshops, featuring scenarios around unconscious bias and the organisational impact it can have on colleagues, service users, etc.
We also have an ongoing partnership with CII to run master classes, workshops and events at the Institute’s Great Hall in London as part of our ILM Level 7 Certificate in Leadership and Management programme, Appledore.
