What is Women in Insurance & Financial Services?

The Women in Insurance and Financial Services Summit provides a platform for emerging and existing female leaders to network, learn from the best in the field and advance their careers.

It’s not an event about women in insurance and financial services, but one for them.

The insurance and financial services sectors are often described as abrupt male centric environments with fierce internal competition, where women in executive positions are a minority. Despite great improvements in workplace flexibility and diversity, women in leadership roles still experience difficulties related to their gender, such as pay inequity, stereotyping, poor flexible working arrangements and a potential glass ceiling that prevents them from accessing decision-making positions.

The complexity of professional development is amplified by fast-changing technology, provoking a modification of business practices and consumers’ expectations.

This event will empower employees and leaders by offering them the tools to better perform in the insurance and financial services sectors and to understand the role of new technology in the future of their industry.
