Continuing on the topic of diversity and inclusion in the insurance sector, Insurance Post share the results of their 2017 survey of the UK insurance workforce.

Comparing the industry figures against the UK population, ethnic diversity is fairly well aligned:

  • White - 89% (insurance) v 87% (population)
  • Asian - 6% (ins) v 7% (pop)
  • Black - 2% (ins) v 3% (pop)
  • Mixed - 2% (ins) v 2% (pop)
  • Other - 1% (ins) v 1% (pop)


It would have been nice to have included some gender figures, but I'll try to find them from another source.
