Huw Evans is the Director General of the Association of British Insurers (ABI).

Find out about a key figure in Insurance in Part 3 of a 3 part series. 

Here are some key messages from this episode: 

  • How the ABI can play a role in promoting diversity and inclusion in Insurance
  • The need for intelligent debates and not witch hunts
  • The opportunity to “take others with you

Here are some key takeaways from this episode: 

Placing Diversity Front & Centre

“I’ve seen significant growth of awareness of the issues, a significant growth in the appetitive to deal with them and an improvement in the data that’s needed to help make the argument”

Informing & Educating Others

“There are quite a chunk of people who aren’t hostile, at all, they just don’t know much, if you can take them with you, you’re converting quite a large chunk of people”

Diversity & Inclusion as a Business Imperative

“If we’re going to make long term and sustainable change, diversity and inclusion isn’t viewed a CSR, reputational nice to have, but viewed as essential to a company or a sector’s future prosperity and sustainability ”
