Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Survey - Insurance Ireland and Deloitte


For the third year running, Insurance Ireland collaborated with Deloitte to issue the 2023 Insurance diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI) survey. The purpose of this year’s survey is to compare results across three years, since the inaugural survey in 2021, to better understand the DEI landscape within the industry and identify potential areas for improvement.

This year, we had 44 respondents from a range of sectors in the insurance industry.

See below for a summary of the key findings from this year’s survey:

  • 80% of respondents have an active DEI strategy in place.
  • 84% reported that DEI is a Board and Executive agenda item within their firm.
  • 43% of firms have a full or part time DEI resource (majority of which are larger firms with 250+ employees).
  • 83% of the surveyed workforce are Irish, with the rest of Europe accounting for 12% of the workforce, and outside of Europe for 5% of the workforce. 
  • 52% of the total workforce surveyed were females, and they represented 32% of senior leadership roles.
  • 52% of firms surveyed have signed up to the Women in Finance Charter, with an additional 11% planning to do so after internal governance and approval procedures.
