Women to Watch presents the advice, guidance, and lessons learned from the most successful women in risk management and insurance. For the past 10 years, Business Insurance has highlighted key women in the field—women noted for their skills, accomplishments, courage, wisdom, and everyday steel. In this book, these women present their stories in their own words; through essays and anecdotes about key issues, key moments, and crucial lessons, former Women to Watch honorees provide a glimpse into what it takes to make it. They've battled obstacles, hurdles, and institutionalized career impediments—and they've come out on top; their stories provide inspiration, motivation, and concrete, real-world guidance for all women who seek advancement in the insurance and risk management fields.
Business Insurance receives several hundred Women to Watch nominations every year; of those, they honor only 25. These women are the cream of the crop, and their unique insights into all-too-common experiences can help us all rise to the top.
The insurance and risk management fields look very different today than they did even 10 years ago; there is much to celebrate, but even more still left to be done. There is no substitute for the wisdom of experience, and the best lessons come from those who have navigated the path successfully. Women to Watch provides unique insight into the women who have conquered the field, and critical perspective for those who will follow.
