"Lead by example" is the advice of many successful women, and we’re looking for those examples—some of the insurance industry’s most driven female leaders. So, we’ve started our Leader of the Month program. Each month on insurancenetworking.com, we will ask a leader about her leadership style, challenges she faces as a woman in insurance and how she overcomes them, lessons learned and insights into leading within an insurance organization.

What’s different about this program? We let the insurance community select who we will highlight. Every month we’ll ask the insurance community to come forward with suggestions. This information will be evaluated by the INN editors, who will then select five finalists. We’ll then ask the WIL LinkedIn Group members to view the nominees and vote for the leader they want to know more about. The INN editors will track down the leader with the most votes, designate them as the Leader of the Month and share their insight and tips for being a leader.

The person being entered (one can enter themselves) must:
•  be currently employed by an insurance company, insurance agency, managing general agent or insurance brokerage.
•  give permission — if being entered by someone else — to be nominated and agrees to answer 4-5 leadership questions via e-mail.

To enter, you'll need:

–Basic info: Name, Title, Company

–A short bio

–A photo of the nominee

–Permission from the nominee to enter

–Once someone is entered, they automatically are entered for all future months.
