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 reveals 2022 Women to Watch honorees


Business Insurance on Thursday named the 2022 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.

Profiles of the winners will appear in the December edition of Business Insurance. The awards will be presented during live events in New York and London.
