"Women bring the ability to change the strategic thinking that impacts the insurance industry. The industry has always been known to be slow for change-- instead of being forward-thinking and progressive, it tracks along at a slower pace than other industries, even though it's huge and impacts the whole world."

- Sharon Emek, President and CEO of Work at Home Vintage Employees LLC

Be prepared to aspire, grow and lead! Our distinguished line up of panelists will address:

  • What opportunities and challenges do women in insurance face?
  • Do women tend to get pigeon-holed in certain functions/roles?
  • What kind of qualifications, skill sets and the on-the job-experience do you need to become a leaderin this field? How accessible are these opportunities to women?
  • Do women bring different qualities to the job compared to men?
  • What needs to happen to encourage more women to enter and stay in the insurance sector?
