InsurTech NY to Sponsor Spencer Educational Foundation Donation Drive
New York, Feb. 8, 2023 — InsurTech NY will sponsor a donation drive for the Spencer Educational Foundation in connection with its InsurTech Spring Conference 2023, taking place March 29 – 30 in NYC.
For two days – February 9th and 10th – InsurTech NY will be donating a percentage of its ticket sales to the Spencer Educational Foundation to help support tomorrow’s risk management leaders.
The conference will feature a Spencer-led panel discussion on how insurers can attract the next generation of talent into the insurance industry with a focus on DE&I and diversifying the pipeline. The panel will feature students who have been awarded Spencer grants or have been through its internship programs.
The student panelists will appear in front of more than 700 people at Pier 60 in NYC. “Spencer’s mission is to raise awareness of the risk management and insurance profession among students,” said Tandeka Nomvete, Director of External Engagement at Spencer. “Providing exposure to the new and emerging technologies from InsurTechs will provide a unique opportunity for our students to experience the impact of the InsurTech wave.”
The InsurTech Spring Conference will host two tracks – Life and Health and Property and Casualty. Attendance at the conference is expected to exceed 700 people and it will host a mix of insurance carriers, insurance brokers, InsurTech startups, and venture capitalists. The conference will feature more than 120 speakers across topics from embedded insurance, third-party data, workflow automation, AI in claims management, and InsurTech and regulator collaboration.
“We look forward to the opportunity to support students in risk management and insurance,” said David Gritz, Managing Director of InsurTech NY. “The insurance industry is not a common career aspiration for teenagers, but it represents one of the most stable and entrepreneurial industries. My hope is long-term we can inspire more young people to consider a career in insurance at an early age.”
