Gender balance

Lloyd’s is committed to creating greater gender equality at all levels across the Corporation, as well as working with stakeholders to achieve the same in the market. The outcome will be an insurance industry that better represents our customers, has more equality at all levels within an organisation, and significant progress on closing the gender pay gap.

Lloyd's Advance Programme

The Lloyd’s Advance programme aims to encourage and increase the number of senior female leaders in the insurance industry. This programme will improve the pipeline of women within the industry identified as future leaders and develop personal attributes, capabilities and networks required to advance their careers supported by a community of peers.


The Lloyd’s Corporation has several employee resource groups and works with several partners and networks inside and outside of the insurance industry.

Best practice - family policies

There’s no such thing as a ‘typical family’ any more. They have evolved to become richer and more complex than ever. Shared parental leave, adoption, surrogacy and terminal care leave are just some of the areas covered in a comprehensive report produced by Inclusion@Lloyd’s.

Training and resources

There are a wide range of resources and toolkits available to individuals and companies on diversity and inclusion topics – from resources for working parents, to mental health at work toolkits.
