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”.
It's been 10 years since Business Insurance started the Women to Watch awards program.
Launched in 2006 to recognize women leaders doing outstanding work in the insurance sector as well as risk and benefits management, the program has raised the profile of the hundreds of honorees and helped raise the issue of gender diversity in a largely male-dominated industry. While there is still a long way to go, we hope the program has encouraged more women to break through the glass ceiling in the sector.
The 25 honorees have been selected by a panel of Business Insurance editors who reviewed nominations submitted by Business Insurance readers. The selection criteria include recent professional achievements, influence on the marketplace and contributions to the advancement of women in business. This year, we added the requirement that nominations include three references from co-workers, clients or other business associates.
As always, it was difficult to narrow the field from the numerous outstanding nominations we received, but we feel we have selected an extraordinary group of honorees and hope you enjoy reading the profiles of the women listed below.
