BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Advice to young women: "Someone entering any business should learn the business and should never quit trying to gain more knowledge of how things work, new products, and new ways to sell the product. They should also be confident to say what they think, even if it is different than what a senior person thinks. As long as you are intellectually honest, you can stand up and say what you believe."
