The specialist Lloyd’s of London insurance and reinsurance marketplace is reportedly set to announce the appointment of prominent figures as the inaugural members of its Culture Advisory Group, Sky News has reported.
According to Sky News, the world’s oldest insurance marketplace is set to announce the first members of its new Culture Advisory Group tomorrow.
Reportedly, this will include former Virgin Money Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and author of a government-backed review of gender diversity in the financial sector, Dame Jayne-Anne Gadhia; psychologist and CEO of APS, John Amaechi; CEO of Mental Health UK, Brian Dow; and also Debbie Ramsay, a Director at GoodCorporation.
Sky News adds that Lloyd’s itself will also be represented “extensively” on the new group, which is to be chaired by Fiona Luck, a Lloyd’s Board Member with responsibility for talent and culture.
In March of last year, the Lloyd’s marketplace outlined a new plan of action to address reports of sexual harassment in the market and create a “safe and inclusive” working environment.
The idea is to increase reporting, impose strong sanctions on inappropriate behaviour, and promote better understanding and awareness of issues across the marketplace.
In November 2019, Lloyd’s announced the launch of its #SpeakUp campaign, designed to underline the importance of speaking up and to provide clear guidance on how people can take action if they either see or experience unacceptable behaviour in the market.
