Ready to Run the World: Women Leaders in Insurance
According to a new study from Safeco Insurance and Liberty Mutual Insurance shows, 60% of employees in agencies are women, yet, they are underrepresented in leadership roles. The report also found that 1 in 4 female frontline staff don't feel they are given equal opportunity in their agency and more than one-third of female agency principals say they are often the only woman in the room. On this episode of Agency Nation Radio, we meet three women who are leaders in the independent agency channel. These women’s accomplishments illustrate the opportunities for women in the insurance industry, and their experiences represent the work that remains to be done to achieve parity. This episode features insight on women in the channel from Liz Nguyen, Vertafore's first female CTO; Crista Walker, vice president of agent engagement at Liberty Mutual and Safeco; and Kate Ferri Dawson, President of Ferri Dawson Insurance Group in Murrysville, Pennsylvania. Welcome to Declaration of Independents on Agency Nation Radio where insurance professionals turn on the mic and share unscripted stories about leadership, technology, marketing, success and failure-- stories that helped make them the professionals they are today.
