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: "Specialization. For me personally, and for many of the women that are on this list, the opportunity to specialize in a particular field of insurance, and taking advantage of that opportunity, cannot be stressed enough. While most of us fell into our careers (and perhaps continue to do so), I strongly recommend grabbing hold of a specialization and then continuously working at perfecting that specialization. This learning never stops, and that is just as important. Even if we don't want to call ourselves experts, we can provide a valuable service to others and be confident in our own abilities when we know what we are talking about.
