LIIBA and WTW launch STEM Insights week

Over 40 school pupils from across the UK will next week be taking part in a range of online coaching sessions run by engineers, research scientists, actuaries, technology and other experts from across the insurance industry.

Hosted by broker Willis Towers Watson and trade body LIIBA, the STEM Learning event will teach pupils aged 14 to 17 about the role of insurance brokers and risk management, as well as how science, technology, engineering and maths play a part in the insurance market.

Heather Connery (pictured), WTW’s corporate risk and broking GB chief of staff, said: “To thrive in today’s rapidly changing world, organisations must adopt a healthy company culture, where inclusion and diversity is steeped in the talent experience, and employees bring their best selves to work. In order to build the diverse workforce we need, at WTW and the wider industry, we are working on a number of areas to reach and support a diverse talent pool. I am thrilled to be working with LIIBA on this initiative and look forward to welcoming future talent into the London Market.”

LIIBA has recruited volunteers from member firms to act as coaches throughout the week, all of whom are accredited STEM Ambassadors.

Christopher Croft, CEO of LIIBA, added: “LIIBA’s keen to help its member firms increase diversity in the London market and create a more inclusive environment. By offering this week-long programme, which is open to any pupil who wants to take part, we’re highlighting the opportunities in the insurance market and also promoting STEM learning.”

The LIIBA STEM Insights Week commences Monday 25th October.
