The Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation (IICF) celebrates greater diversity and inclusion at all levels within the insurance industry. We look to recognize leaders who are personally and visibly committed to the advancement of diversity of all kinds.
The Inclusion Champion Award represents the highest ideals and real world implementation of championing inclusion, diversity, equity and accessibility through mentoring, talent development and advocacy to achieve a fully inclusive workplace. The award is bestowed by IICF biennially on those individuals who demonstrate leadership and advocacy for these ideals in the workplace, along with a personal commitment to community service. The award candidates were nominated by industry colleagues and undergo a rigorous review made by industry volunteers working in the DEI space.
Successful candidates should demonstrate the following behaviors in their nomination materials, questionnaires and interviews:
Someone who is a mentor and sponsor, develops talent and influences others in their organization to advocate for diversity, equity and inclusion.
Someone who champions all forms of inclusion and diversity in the workplace.
Someone who is also personally committed to community service.
