Issue 56: Everyone Matters in Diversity & Inclusion

The conversation surrounding Diversity and Inclusion certainly raises a lot of questions. So where do issues related to Diversity and Inclusion stand today? How have companies made changes to address these issues? Where are we seeing progress and where are there still inequities to be addressed? What’s more, how has the pandemic set us back when it comes to Diversity and Inclusion efforts?

While leadership support is a critical factor, building diverse, authentic relationships that create empathy is a worthwhile investment that takes time. This is something all of us can do every day – no matter how small the initiative – to appreciate diversity and inclusion. An important step towards a more equitable and representative workplace is to go beyond learning and instead, to listen and act. Simple steps to better understand what drives the people we connect with every day goes a long way toward creating an environment where all of us feel that we belong. This is an essential part of business growth that intends to serve people from diverse backgrounds and needs.

Specially for all our Newsweekly readers, here’s a FREE & FULL article from Issue 56 titled "From Intention to Reality – Creating Diversity and Inclusion in Insurance" for your reading pleasure!

Complimentary access to the full Issue is now available at https://miipublications.com.my/ for all MII Members.



All MII Members get complimentary access to MII’s quarterly INSURANCE e-Magazine.
