Last month, our inclusion and diversity network met in Copenhagen for our annual international two-day summit. This year marked a significant milestone on our journey towards greater inclusivity and diversity across the firm. Over 80 colleagues, from all Clearwater offices, dedicated their time and effort to collaborate on fostering a more inclusive and diverse workplace. 

ClearVision has evolved over the last three years, moving from a small female-centric group towards a community of advocates which now includes male allies. In Copenhagen, 60% of women and over 10% of male colleagues participated, demonstrating the strength and potential of this collaborative network to influence all aspects of diversity, equity, inclusion (DE&I), belonging, and well-being.

The summit in Copenhagen benefited from two excellent facilitators, who co-delivered an engaging and fully interactive experience. Daniele Fiandaca returned and led a unique session focused on engaging men, equipping them with the insight and understanding necessary to create a more inclusive culture. Anngaid Plourde, who has previously collaborated with us, facilitated an inspiring Open Space seminar for the ClearVision women, encouraging openness, powerful conversations, and tools for success.

"ClearVision has evolved over the last three years, moving from a small female-centric group towards a community of advocates which now includes male allies."

One of the key goals for ClearVision in Copenhagen was to raise awareness of the current barriers to inclusion faced by women and other historically marginalised groups in the industry, based on sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity, religion, neurodiversity, disability, and all other characteristics of diversity.

Throughout the two days, colleagues came together to address challenges and opportunities, working together to develop solutions aimed at enhancing our inclusive workplace culture and ensuring wellbeing is at its core. The keywords and themes that emerged as action steps were extremely encouraging

  • Be more empathetic
  • Consider different views
  • Speak up
  • Be vulnerable
  • Encourage others
  • Listen more

Rebecca Ferrami, Office Manager, Italy, shared her thoughts:

“Thank you for these two fantastic days. I always believed in the value of the tool, but I never imagined it could be so personally impactful. We had truly constructive discussions and exchanged ideas and experiences that have profoundly changed me. We addressed very important topics, and I sincerely hope this marks the beginning of a long journey that will position Clearwater among the top companies and, why not, as one of the best places to work.”

ClearVision attendee, Denmark, commented: 

“This event was everything I hoped for. Absolutely loved it. Good workshops, the men were so good and took an active part, and our facilitators did amazing and were not too much, not too little - it was just perfect. Thank you so much for arranging ClearVision and fighting for this change to happen. It is so important, and I appreciate it more than I can even describe!” 

Phil Burns, Chair and Co-Founder, added: 

"Absolutely delighted to have attended our ClearVision conference in Copenhagen. ClearVision is our engine for driving our DE&I agenda throughout the business. Having 80 colleagues together discuss our key challenges and opportunities in this area was truly inspirational."
