TechAssure is joining the National African American Insurance Association (NAAIA) as a supporting partner
Innovation Broking is proud to support TechAssure’s decision to join the National African American Insurance Association (NAAIA) as a supporting partner. TechAssure is the leading network of insurance brokers worldwide, for technology related risks.
The death of George Floyd in the US has unleashed an outpouring of stories across the world that shine a spotlight on the injustices faced by black people today.
Systemic failures in political and societal structures have continued unchallenged; the time for change is long overdue. It is our collective duty to speak up, and to actively support appropriate reforms that would help prevent racism and inequality in the workplace and across society as a whole.
TechAssure’s strength is in our diversity. It should be our renewed focus to amplify this diversity to become better allies and a part of the much needed change. This requires conversations with associate organisations in the UK and around the world, with people from a variety of cultures and backgrounds.
However, words are not enough: we must all take collective action where possible. For our small part, TechAssure is joining the National African American Insurance Association (NAAIA) as a partner to financially support the Association’s mission to “empower African American insurance professionals” and to help ensure the diversity of the insurance industry. It is our hope that the insurance industry, including the collective TechAssure network, can help make the positive changes needed to protect the rights and opportunities for black, asian and ethnic minority people in our industry and beyond.
