Gender Equality Network
The Gender Equality Network (GEN) provides opportunities for networking, education and development of business capabilities for all employees, with the aim of driving positive change towards the goal of gender equality within Chubb and the wider insurance industry.
"I am committed to inspiring an inclusive culture at Chubb and in my role as executive sponsor I intend to promote and inspire gender equality at all levels within the organisation. I recognise that an effective workplace is one in which all employees feel included. The Gender Equality Network (GEN) has the capabilities to both empower and educate our community, which is why we have decided to rebrand from the Women's Forum to GEN. Further engagement from men will not only expand our scope of possibilities, but it will also ensure GEN's success."

Parents and Carers
The Parents and Carers Network aims to further develop a supportive culture to enable parents and carers to successfully integrate a fulfilling working life and family responsibilities.
“I am delighted to endorse Chubb’s Parents and Carers Network as executive sponsor. Being a former carer and a current parent myself, I truly appreciate how difficult and challenging it can be to juggle a successful work and home life. As a network, our main aim is to provide support and guidance to our employees to enable them to perform to the best of their ability both at home and work. I believe this is crucial and will greatly contribute to the success of the business.”

The activities we focus on in this stream are centred on removing barriers and fostering fairer social mobility so that opportunities within Chubb are open to all, which I genuinely believe will contribute to the future success of the business”.

Chubb is a multinational company, and our staff live and work in a multicultural world. In order to attract, retain and develop the best talent, we want Chubb to be a place where all our staff can bring their ‘whole self’ to work and feel comfortable about expressing their cultural heritage in an environment that is respectful of diversity and which positively celebrates and values the variety of backgrounds we all have.
“Chubb is a truly international company, and we work with clients, partners and colleagues from across the globe. An understanding and appreciation of other cultures is a tremendous asset in ensuring that those interactions are both positive and effective. Whether you are sorting out a client service issue or helping a new colleague settle into an unfamiliar environment, being aware of any cultural factors that might be involved can certainly ease the process. As someone who has had a very international career, I’m very pleased indeed to be the executive sponsor of the Cultural Awareness network: I truly believe that increasing understanding in this area not only makes great business sense for a company like Chubb, but is personally enriching and, not least, fun!”
Executive sponsor Giles Ward, Regional President Eurasia & Africa
The Chubb Pride UKI group brings together our LGBT employees and their supporters to provide opportunities for networking and support with the aim of driving positive change to making Chubb a fully inclusive place for our LGBT community.
“Creating a work environment that is genuinely inclusive, safe and welcoming allows all of our employees to have a sense of pride in who they are, who they work for and to bring their whole self to work each day.
Having a strong LGBT support network not only helps our employees, it also helps us attract and retain customers, build products that are relevant to different groups and help us understand how to support those groups.
Chubb Pride UKI is open to everyone, having LGBT and allies as part of the group sends a message of strength and underlines that ‘we are in this together’.
I’m proud to be part of getting the LGBT network established.”
