InsurTech NY and NAAIA Event Details

The history of insurance is intertwined with some of the biggest injustices and challenges in American history. As times have changed, so has insurance. However, many obstacles still exist that limit or prevent black executives and black InsurTech founders.

NAAIA and InsurTechNY seek to raise awareness of the internal and external biases that exist in the insurance industry to promote diversity and inclusion. Join us for a startup showcase and panel discussion by black founders. Tune in for an in-depth discussion of the path to remove race from insurance underwriting.
