The PLUS Foundation is very pleased to announce that Ivy Kusinga, Chief Culture & Talent Officer at Chubb, is the first recipient of the Excellence in Diversity Award. This award was established in 2021 by the PLUS Foundation to recognize a member of the insurance industry who embodies the foundation mission to “support tomorrow’s diverse professional liability workforce” through their actions to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in the industry.

Ivy has been with Chubb of over 20 years, most recently as the Chief Culture and Talent Officer. In her professional role Ivy has partnered with other leaders to strengthen Chubb’s culture and provide an inclusive, equitable environment that fosters high performance. Ivy speaks extensively on issues of corporate culture, employee engagement, diversity and inclusion and serves on several non-profit boards in addition to Worldmaker International. She is described over and over as an inspiring agent of change. Ivy participated in two Conversations about Race webinars that the Foundation has hosted, and the concept behind the Excellence in Diversity Award was sparked by Ivy’s challenge in the first webinar. Born in Uganda, Ivy attended university in Nova Scotia, Canada and currently resides in Philadelphia.
