ABI urges insurers not to get left behind on DEI

ABI has published an update on progress against its three priorities of Attract, Grow and Advance set out in its DEI blueprint published this time last year. It has seen an increase in firms that now collect data on neurodiversity, although still only 47% of firms do.  Almost one quarter now have specific policies in place to support neurodiverse people in the workplace.  It is also pleased that encouraging sign up to the Women in Finance Charter and Business in the Community’s Race at Work Charter is already having a clear, tangible impact on advancing DEI in the industry.  While there have been pleasing changes at senior level, ABI notes progress has stalled on apprenticeships.
