Risk transformations and ESG: The importance of diversity and inclusion for modern risk leaders

Share this article

Along with climate risk and setting your business up for a more sustainable future, the question of how social factors can influence a brand's bottom line has become key for risk managers worldwide. Although a strong focus on the S (social) in ESG, can result in many tangible benefits for you company, managing the transitions can be challenging.  Watch below some of the leading risk managers and experts talk about social factors in risk and learn to manage risk transformations successfully, how to champion diversity and inclusion in your risk leadership - and why it's vital that you do so!

The S in ESG: What should risk leaders be aware of?

"A lot of banks were represented here in the last couple of days, and their perception in society hasn't always been the best. How they reposition themselves and how that comes from the top is absolutely critical."

We had a chat with Fiona McKay, Global Leadership & Transformation Strategist, Lightbulb Leadership Solutions about the key diversity and inclusion issues that boards need to pay attention to today. Watch the full interview below.


Diversity & inclusion in action: what are the current challenges?

"[...] in my experience, groups from different ways of life and people from different ways of life actually flourish much more in such an environment because they were judged on the outcomes, not on random factors they cannot change. This certainly is a good thing and it’s the thing that we should try to keep and develop further once this pandemic is over."

What are the tangible benefits of diversity and inclusion? How has the pandemic impacted D&I? What are the main hurdles to D&I? Katja Pluto, Chief Risk Officer EMEA, Zurich Insurance Company, joins us to answer these questions, and shares how D&I impacted customers & employees alike!

Risk transformations: How does the CRO need to evolve to become tomorrow's leader?

"Now if you want to go back to the old models, you will lose really good people."

Katja Rieger, Founder, Xponential, addresses the crucial question: Can we go back the way we were? Find out in our interview with Katja below.
