Dive In Gala Dinner and Impact Awards

The Dive In Festival has grown from a Lloyd’s market event in London at launch in 2015 to become an award winning global movement that is embraced by the wider insurance industry.

Its mission is to create engaging moments of shared insight and experience that inspire behaviour change at the individual and institutional level to support the creation of inclusive cultures that are good for business and best for people.

On 6th November 2019, The Dive In Impact Awards celebrated the the Dive In movement and specifically acknowledged the people, networks, and organisations who reflect its mission, often as volunteers and always through discretionary effort.
