Travelers Institute University Tours
One way Travelers distinguishes itself as a prospective employer is by proactively engaging on public policy issues that impact the insurance industry through the Travelers Institute. As one example, the Travelers Institute partners with university risk management and insurance programs to bring the Every Second Matters® distracted driving symposium series to campuses across the United States and Canada. The program raises awareness about the dangers of distracted driving and promotes safe driving. It also highlights the relevance of this issue to the insurance industry and challenges insurance leaders to leverage data and technology to address distracted driving and help save lives.
Gamma Iota Sigma, an international business fraternity for students of insurance, risk management and actuarial science, is a key recruiting relationship for Travelers, and the Travelers Institute regularly partners with its chapters to host events on their campuses and has presented at Gamma Iota Sigma’s international and regional conferences.
Similarly, in the past, the Travelers Institute has traveled to universities to raise awareness about the U.S. national debt and its implications for the American economy. As the presenting sponsor of the PBS documentary “Overdraft” – a nonpartisan look at the growing national debt and its impact on individuals and U.S. economic competitiveness – the Travelers Institute hosted an educational symposium series between 2012 and 2014 that featured 80 screenings of the film for groups across the country.
