Insurers live in the world of risk. Whether it’s determining how much (or little) risk to take in underwriting a given policy, or developing risk mitigation procedures to protect their organization, the idea of minimizing exposure to factors that can’t be controlled is embedded in the framework of the industry.
It is with this awareness of risk that insurers have always sought to stay a step ahead in all facets of business, including in taking a leadership role in progressing the gender diversity–and equality–discussion forward. The industry is coalescing around this issue, working to support the development of women into leadership roles in today’s workplace. And while great progress has been made, there is still much more that we can do.
