Dig­i­tal In­sur­ance honors 10 fe­male ex­ec­u­tives who are trans­form­ing how their com­pa­nies op­er­ate, en­gage cus­tomers and grow

This year’s hon­orees dis­tin­guish them­selves by an­tic­i­pat­ing change, re­spond­ing rapidly and po­si­tion­ing their com­pa­nies for growth.

The Women in In­sur­ance Lead­er­ship award pro­gram, now in its 12th year, rec­og­nizes car­rier ex­ec­u­tives who are at the fore­front of the in­dus­try’s dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion. In­deed, the pace of change in the in­sur­ance mar­ket has never been faster. Emerg­ing tech­nolo­gies are im­pact­ing all cor­ners of the in­sur­ance value chain, driv­ing changes in how car­ri­ers de­sign and sell prod­ucts, in­ter­act with their cus­tomers and man­age risk. This year’s WIL hon­orees share com­mon at­tributes that are help­ing them suc­ceed. They know how to an­tic­i­pate change, de­sign re­spon­sive strate­gies, and im­ple­ment new prod­ucts and ser­vices to po­si­tion their firms to en­gage ex­ist­ing cus­tomers and at­tract new ones. More specif­i­cally, this year’s 10 in­sur­ance lead­ers are ex­plor­ing the bound­aries of ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence and ma­chine learn­ing, har­ness­ing the In­ter­net of Things, build­ing vi­sion­ary tech­nol­ogy plat­forms, stream­lin­ing pro­cesses and pro­ce­dures, cre­at­ing new busi­ness mod­els and trans­form­ing their or­ga­ni­za­tions. They are com­bin­ing in­sur­ance’s his­tor­i­cal tra­di­tion of pro­vid­ing peace of mind to cus­tomers at a time of stress, with the range of mod­ern-day chan­nels for de­liv­er­ing on that prom­ise. To se­lect the Women in In­sur­ance Lead­er­ship award win­ners, Dig­i­tal In­sur­ance is­sues a call for nom­i­na­tions. Sub­mis­sions are col­lected from in­sur­ance com­pa­nies, an­a­lysts and soft­ware ven­dors through­out the spring and early sum­mer. Each year, more than 40 women are nom­i­nated. The win­ners from the pre­vi­ous year and Dig­i­tal In­sur­ance’s edi­tors eval­u­ate the en­tries, look­ing for ev­ery­thing from in­no­va­tive ideas and ground-break­ing tech­nol­ogy de­ploy­ments to a com­mit­ment to men­tor other women in the in­dus­try.
