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”.

2023 Women to Watch Awards

The Business Insurance Women to Watch Awards program was launched in 2006 to celebrate the achievements of women leaders and executives in the insurance and risk management industry and highlight female talent in a sector dominated by men.

After 18 years, the insurance sector has significantly more women in senior positions, but the highest levels of leadership are still largely occupied by male executives.

Many of this year’s winners are actively involved in formal and informal efforts to promote their female peers and staff with the ultimate goal of encouraging gender equality among leadership ranks.

The diversity efforts have also expanded beyond gender to promote wider levels of inclusivity throughout the sector.

The 2023 Women to Watch were selected through a rigorous process that began in June with a call for nominations. We received more than 260 entries, which detailed the nominees’ expertise, leadership qualities and achievements.

Business Insurance editorial staff reviewed all of the nominations. Finalists were selected after two rounds of judging. After we read written references and spoke with other references, we named 20 winners from Europe, the Middle East and Africa and 30 from North America and the rest of the world.

We hope you enjoy reading the profiles of all the 2023 winners.
