Increasing Gender Diversity in Insurance Leadership
By Spencer Stuart & ACORD
The value of diversity is well-recognized today. Yet study after study finds that the pipeline of women narrows at each successive level of most organizations. While we see milestones in the number of women in corporate boardrooms and C-suites, most would agree that women’s progress into senior business leadership roles remains mixed.
ACORD and executive search firm Spencer Stuart conducted in-depth discussions with several senior women leaders about turning points in their careers. We drew upon the individual and organizational lessons learned to provide not only the “why” but also the “how” for building gender diversity in the leadership pipeline.
