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.
