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”.

Greatest influence: "My grandmother has had the greatest influence on how I approach the work environment. She owned her own business, and while I never consciously thought about it when I was young, she shaped most of my ideas of how women behave in the workplace. As I saw her, she was very in control, confident in her ability to make good decisions and conveyed a sense of belonging in any environment. Since starting my career, I have had several mentors who have provided invaluable advice and opportunities. I can't imagine trying to successfully negotiate all the decisions that make a career without guidance from people you respect and who appreciate your skills."
