Business Insurance announces 2021 Women to WatchPosted On: Oct. 14, 2021 11:10 AM CST
Business Insurance on Thursday named the 2021 winners of its annual Women to Watch awards program.
Business Insurance started the program in 2006 to recognize women leaders doing outstanding work in risk management and commercial insurance. From the beginning, the program has recognized winners working around the globe, and in 2017, the publication expanded the awards to include a separate program specifically for women executives in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Business Insurance readers nominated candidates for Women to Watch, and a panel of Business Insurance editors selected the honorees based on those nominations.
Below are this year’s 30 honorees for Women to Watch and 20 honorees for Women to Watch EMEA. The awards will be presented during virtual events in November and December.
