Sin City is not known by most business people as a place for deep thinking, celebrating women's successes or crafting innovative business change. However, that is exactly what happened at INN's first annual Women in Insurance Leadership Forum, held in partnership with Smallwood Maike & Assoc. in Las Vegas in mid-November. The event began with ceremony that recognized winners of INN's Women in Insurance Leadership program (see the November 2008 issue of INN), and attracted executives within the industry, offering opportunities to network and discuss critical issues facing the industry today.

Rather than dwelling on possible challenges of being a woman in business, the discussion focused on actionable measures. This further indicates just why these women are successful leaders. They discussed challenges involved with leading a younger generation that takes a different approach to business, embracing a changing business model that requires emerging technologies and bridging the gap between business and technology within their companies.
