Business Insurance unveils 2023 Women to Watch honoreesPosted On: Oct. 5, 2023 10:46 AM CST
Business Insurance on Thursday named the 2023 winners of its annual Women to Watch awards program.
The program, which began in 2006, recognizes 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 events in London on Nov. 7 and New York on Dec. 4-5.
