More about Amplify Women
Educating, networking and supporting women in all positions is extremely important to the captive industry.
Amplify Women will focus 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.

CICA’s Amplify Women will focus on representing women in educational opportunities such as speaking at conferences, publishing articles, teaching and academic partnerships. They are also addressing opportunities for influence such as serving on captive association and industry boards. Developing in-person and online networking opportunities will be another core component of their efforts.
Efforts are now underway to expand the mentoring of women in the captive insurance industry, increase the participation of women in speaking roles, and inspire women to contribute articles for industry publications.”
