Equality and Diversity - a good practice guide from the Chartered Insurance Institute
The Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) has an Equality & Diversity good practice guide for members, employers and the insurance and financial services professions as a whole to raise awareness and encourage best practice.

The CII's guidance includes useful tips, case studies and resources to help professionals, particularly those in smaller firms, go beyond the minimum requirements when managing diversity. In this way they are better able to benefit from the huge rewards that good understanding, engagement and effective management of equality and diversity can bring to organisations in the areas of reputation, recruitment/ staff retention, productivity and risk mitigation.

Case studies in the CII's good practice guide include examples of how Lloyd's of London, Aviva and LINK, the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual (LGBT) support group, are working to promote equality and diversity within the insurance profession.
