The Big “I" Diversity Council is pleased to support Dive In: The Festival for Diversity & Inclusion in Insurance, to take place in numerous locations all over the world Sept. 24-26.
Dive In is helping insurance get fit for the future by highlighting the business case for diverse and inclusive workplaces and providing practical ideas and inspiration for how to bring about positive change.
In 2018, the festival attracted more than 9,000 people across 27 countries in 50 cities. This makes Dive In unique, as an international, sector-wide, concurrent diversity and inclusion event. This year—the festival's fifth year—is expected to be the biggest yet, due to take place in over 60 cities and over 30 countries.

The theme for Dive In is #impactinclusion and the Big “I" is excited to join in on the theme by hosting the inaugural Level Up Agent Summit, to take place Jan. 14-15, 2020 in New Orleans.
The event will bring together independent agents, association leaders, carrier executives and other industry representatives from across the country. The goal? Agency growth, as well as increased innovation and sustainability through diversity and inclusion.
What makes Level Up different? Everything. You will receive step-by-step guidance from global business leaders on how to build a culture of inclusion and diversity across your agency. Workshops will cover a variety of topics, such as attracting young and diverse talent, understanding the buying power of women, kickstarting your agency perpetuation plan, gaining insights from peers on agency tech innovations, developing multicultural networks, and more.
