On July 22, 2021, to support New York insurers’ diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) efforts, the Department of Financial Services (DFS) hosted a webinar on actions that insurers can take to increase the diversity of their leadership and broader workforce.  The webinar included two panel discussions.  The first panel provided perspectives from the C-Suite and the second panel focused on specific DEI practices and initiatives in the insurance industry.  For more information on what DFS is doing to support insurers’ DEI efforts, see the Circular Letter published on March 16, 2021 available here: https://www.dfs.ny.gov/industry_guidance/circular_letters/cl2021_05.
