DEI INITIATIVE OF THE YEAR

Ally and Advocacy Programmes
Zurich Insurance Plc

This year’s winning initiative has proved that this organisation is serious about DE&I. Judges were wowed by the breadth and depth of their focus and impact. They strive for diversity across all dimensions with multiple projects, for example, their initiatives that build female talent and focus on their commitment to achieve equal pay in the business; their black internship programme; and their work with Cool2BTrans to name a few. This organisation is tackling awareness at all levels, from top to bottom. They are actively seeking to collaborate with outside partners and groups in order to strengthen the success of these initiatives and to provide individuals with further support beyond the organisation. They are also supporting the wider educational structure (UCD, DCU) in Ireland and are advocates for volunteering in the community. Thank you for the amazing work you are doing – these initiatives are key examples for all organisations.
