Inclusion Initiatives a Bright Spot in 2020

The Big “I” Diversity Council is pleased to have introduced new initiatives, programs and resources throughout 2020.

The council hosted the Big “I” inaugural business and inclusion conference, Level Up Agent Summit, recognized as one of the best diversity and inclusion conferences across the insurance industry to date.

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, the Diversity Council pivoted to focus on mental health, resulting in the webinar, Your Agency Success Starts with You, spotlighting the importance of self-care and team care in the midst of the pandemic.

During social unrest in 2020, the Diversity Council this summer launched the Courageous Conversations toolkit to equip agents to lead the way into cultural inclusivity focused on race.

This fall, the council sponsored 12 women agent leaders to participate in an executive women’s mentorship program, Women Empowering Women. The council also launched the Right Start Mentorship Program 2.0 in which underrepresented agency owners are connected with agency owner and carrier mentors throughout the course of six months.

The Diversity Council also hosted Getting through the Holidays During a Pandemic, in which Dr. Isaiah Pickens, clinical psychologist, provides science-backed recommendations on how agents can navigate a stressful time for many.

Please contact Whitnee Dillard, Big “I" director of diversity & inclusion, to learn more about the Big “I” Diversity Council.
