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”.

Business Insurance's 2011 Women to Watch honorees

Business Insurance's 2011 Women to Watch honorees

Business Insurance's annual Women to Watch feature recognizes individuals doing exceptional work in risk management, benefits management, commercial insurance and related fields.

The insurance industry, especially at the executive levels, remains a male-dominated sector in many areas. But more and more women are being appointed to executive and senior management positions, as we have seen in this annual feature throughout the past six years.

It is always tough for the BI editors involved in the selection process to narrow down the field of candidates and select only 25 honorees. This year the process was extraordinarily difficult as we received a record number of nominations.

However, we have selected what we think is an exceptional group of women who are doing extraordinary work.
