We are a group of ISC members who aim to:
- Foster a welcoming environment for Women of Colour and/or Ethnic Minorities at different stages of their career, so they have a supportive community to share in and feel a sense of belongingness.
- Elevate the profile of Women of Colour and/or Ethnic Minorities through initiatives that increase their visibility and create opportunities for learning, recruitment, promotion, allyship and thought leadership.
- Champion courageous conversations in the industry on racial justice and celebrate the vulnerability it takes to talk about race and/or ethnicity and gender, in an open and constructive way.
- Hold accountable individual members and partner organisations for acting with respect, intention and sufficient action to contribute to the meaningful elevation and success of Women of Colour and/or Ethnic Minorities in insurance.
We are starting 2021 with some fantastic ideas in the pipeline to bring change across the insurance industry, and welcome anyone interested in helping us with this mission.

Statement on the George Floyd verdict:
The ISC’s Racial Justice Working Group marks the significance of the outcome of the George Floyd trial. The verdict brings a sense of justice to a Family, a Community and a Nation.
However, the climb to combat racial discrimination in our societies remains steep. Achieving racial justice requires more action and accountability from Governments, the corporate sector, educational institutions and individuals in positions of power driving meaningful and sustainable change.
Today sees a continued focus on tackling systemic racism and progressing racial justice issues including racial discrimination in policing, protecting voting rights, safeguarding of protesting rights, and standing with Asians and other Ethnic Minority groups facing discrimination and the emotional and physical tolls of racism. Equally important, the need for economic empowerment of Black people and Ethnic Minorities has never been bigger.
The ISC’s Racial Justice Working Group remains committed to being a catalyst for meaningful change in the advancement and support of Women of Colour / Ethnic Minorities in the global insurance industry.
