In keeping with the overall theme of this year’s conference of putting 2020 and 2021 “in the rear view mirror,” the Prayer Breakfast will focus on social issues that historically have been present in our country for centuries but seemingly during the past two years have re-emerged (sometimes tragically) as a continuing problem – Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion. Unknown to many, the insurance industry has taken a leading role in dealing with these issues. One such effort has been developed by Zurich Insurance NA, primarily relying on the spiritual path for providing faith-based answers to these concerns. Organizers and continued supporters of the “Zurich approach” will be presenting on how faith is an aspect of any discussion on Diversity, Equality and Inclusion and the role that individuals and organizations can take in support of meaningful discussions that create actual results. What are the “best practices” for creating and sustaining such efforts incorporating faith-based principles and scripture. This session is a precursor to the two-hour session that follows: “Leading Diversity, Equality and Inclusion (DEI) Excellence: Why Workers’ Compensation and Why Now?”
