More about Amplify Women
Educating, networking with and supporting women is extremely important to the captive industry.
Amplify Women focuses on representing women in educational and networking opportunities such as speaking at conferences, publishing articles, teaching and academic partnerships.
The committee chose the name “Amplify Women” to represent their efforts to address the gap in women leaders. Insurance industry studies show women make up over 60 percent of the work force in the industry, but when it comes to officers and other senior level positions those numbers drop below 20 percent.
