Alexandria, Va. — Future One, a collaboration of the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (the Big “I”) and leading independent agency companies, released key findings from their biennial “Agency Universe Study,” (INN December 5) which revealed the need for young, female and minority professionals in the independent insurance agency system.

The survey results point to InVEST, a Big “I” program in dozens of classrooms across the country, as a solution, with 56% of respondents stating that the insurance industry should encourage high schools and community colleges to help students plan for insurance careers. Also, 45% of agencies said they would consider participating in an internship program to bring new people into the insurance industry.
