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: "I would tell them that it is OK not to achieve perfect balance between professional and personal life all the time. Sometimes work demands will be the priority and other times it will be family. It takes time to build a career as well as a family and each requires give and take. Accept that life will feel out of balance at any given time and be prepared to shift the pendulum back to rebalance as necessary."
