The insurance industry faces a paradox. It’s an industry made up of 60% women (Property Casualty 360) but only 19% of board seats are held by women.
International Women’s Day (Mar 8) gives us an opportunity to redefine the fabric of our industry. We would like to thank and recognize the women participating as moderators, speakers, judges, and startup finalists in our March 19 Spring Conference for leading the way to a better insurance community.
You will be able to meet these inspirational women at our Annual Spring Conference on March 19th in New York City.
If you have not already registered, there are still spots available.
