2019 everywoman in Insurance Forum: Diversity of Thought

 

 

everywoman is pleased to announce the launch of the 2019 everywoman in Insurance Forum taking place in London on July 2nd 2019. 

This empowering one-day event will bring together influential industry professionals who are committed to bringing about change in order to attract, develop and retain more women in the insurance industry.

The forum will be a day of learning and networking for female and male talent who will gain a fuller understanding of how gender diversity has a positive impact on performance, and how achieving a better gender-balanced workforce is vital for all businesses - not least those in the insurance industry.

Whilst having a strong gender mix, the insurance industry has increasingly been identified as lacking in terms of the presence of women in key leadership roles.  This forum will highlight the key successes of gender balance from female leaders in the industry, it will look at how organisations can manage the transformation that the industry is currently undergoing by addressing organisational culture, harnessing new technologies and strengthening the talent pipeline.

The forum is open to both women and men and is an ideal fit for female and male managers who are looking to develop teams or perhaps champion gender disparity in the industry.

Don’t miss the chance to connect, share and learn at this valuable event. 

The 2019 everywoman in Insurance Forum is certified by The CPD Certification Service.
