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