This year marks the first year that Dive In, the festival for diversity and inclusion in insurance, has gone global. Sparke Helmore Lawyers is proud to be a sponsor of the Festival's Workability Celebration hosted by Lloyd's Australia in Sydney on 29 September, alongside Allianz Australia and Spinal Cure Australia.
The Workability Celebration focuses on breaking down barriers around physical disability in the workplace and will provide an opportunity for guests to interact with guest speakers and talk about their experiences and expertise. It is the fifth and final session to close out the festival in Sydney.
Gillian Davidson, Board Member, Partner and Inclusion and Diversity Committee Chair, said: "We feel it's really important to be part of the Dive In festival because of the value that inclusion and diversity brings to business. Joining together with different organisations and being part of a global movement gives us a unique opportunity to share experiences and learn how we can continue to make positive and lasting change."
Sparke Helmore is an equal opportunity employer, committed to creating a workplace that respects, includes and values differences, recognises and nurtures the contributions that individuals make, and which fosters a work environment that maximises the potential of all our people. As part of this commitment, the firm is increasing diversity in the leadership team and providing education and skill development training for partners, to help them drive cultural change.
