Insurance Networking News (INN) is now accepting nominations for its 2013 Women in Insurance Leadership (WIL) awards. The WIL program recognizes 10 female insurance executives from IT or other business functions who have made a substantial impact on their organizations. Deadline for submissions is June 21, 2013.

Now in its eighth year, INN's WIL program has detailed the extraordinary efforts of more than 60 professionals whose leadership has set the standard for the application of technology in the insurance business.

WIL judges — who are all 2012 Women in Insurance Leadership winners — are asked to consider both the quantitative and qualitative aspects of the nominee's performance and the influence she has had on both her institution and the insurance community as a whole. Nomination forms can be downloaded here.

Winners will be announced in September on, and in-depth profiles of all 10 winners will be published in the October/November 2013 print and digital editions of INN.

Awards will be presented at the Women in Insurance Leadership Forum, which will be hosted by Insurance Networking News on Oct. 29-30, 2013, at the InterContinental Chicago hotel. The event’s agenda includes topics on leadership development, IT/business alignment, mentoring, and more.

Along with its call for WIL nominations, INN also released its second-annual Women in Insurance Leadership Insight Report, which focuses on the career development of women in the insurance profession. The study, conducted in partnership with the Women in Insurance Networking Group (WING) professional group, found that gender diversification, especially at the executive level, is improving in the insurance business. However, women looking to advance up the ladder still face challenges. The report is available for download here.
