According to a statement on Friday, the event themed ‘Breaking the Taboo: Mental Health and Wellness in the Workplace’ is scheduled to hold on September 28 virtually.
The statement reads, “The global insurance industry’s well-established festival for diversity, equity, and inclusion is back for the fourth time in Nigeria, joining over 40 countries taking part across the globe.
“The event will focus on traditional taboos associated with mental health in Nigeria; the importance of good mental health; and the role that employers can play in maintaining employees’ mental health and wellbeing regardless of harsh traditional and societal lenses.
“Industry experts will advocate the need to build braver, psychologically safe work cultures that truly allow people to feel safe, valued, respected, and free to express themselves.
“Facilitating the 2022 Dive In the virtual event in Nigeria is, financial broadcast journalist and business anchor at CNBC Africa, Esther Awoniyi. Also billed to speak on the panel is Omokunbi Adeoti, Divisional Director at Leadway Assurance. Joining the panel is mental health and wellness expert Chioma Fakorede.”
The organiser of the event in Nigeria, Mary Alade, said, “Every year Dive In brings new topics to the table. After the success of Dive In Nigeria over the last three years we’re delighted to be back again with an impressive array of speakers discussing a topic that is so important to the Nigerian insurance sector but is rarely discussed.
“This event will not only facilitate an important conversation, but it will also ensure that those who attend will be given practical guidance to help inspire real change and encourage further discussions around mental health.”
