2018 Submissions Now Open
Since its inception more than a decade ago, Digital Insurance’s presentation of the most influential women in insurance has profiled the extraordinary accomplishments of more than 70 individuals—whose pursuit of excellence, leadership and professional performance has fostered influence that is redefining the insurance business and technology industry landscape.
The Women in Insurance Leadership program reveals how these women arrived at their respective leadership positions. How do they prepare for and manage through difficult change? How do they innovate? How do they identify new market opportunities that fulfill the financial objectives of their institutions? Finally, how do they mentor future leaders, and reach beyond the walls of their institutions to serve the community at large?
Judges, who are all former WIL honorees themselves, examine the quantitative and qualitative aspects of an individual's performance, as well as overall influence on the institution, the industry and the community in which she lives and works. They also rank the candidate’s performance based on job complexity, contribution to the institution's top and bottom lines, brand equity/shareholder value creation, corporate governance and ethics, management style and education and on her level of community involvement.
The top candidates are featured in a special print edition, and are formally recognized at the annual Women in Insurance Leadership Forum.
