SHE TravelsSM

Advancing Women’s Careers in Insurance

In 2018, we kicked off an initiative to lead the industry in advocating for women in insurance. We’ve taken it on the road with a program called SHE TravelsSM — named to highlight Travelers' support of the positive momentum of women in our industry. SHE Travels has three priorities:

  • Raise awareness of insurance as an attractive career opportunity for women;
  • Promote professional development for women already in the industry; and
  • Facilitate effective networking and mentoring for those women.

At the heart of SHE Travels is a series of Women’s Leadership Forums focused on topics for advancing women in the workplace. The first three events, held in Atlanta, Chicago and Boston in late 2018, gained gender-inclusive participation by approximately 225 agents and Travelers field employees. We plan to hold more than 20 networking and mentoring events in 2019 in cities across the United States.
