                                        This presentation will address human capital implications of DEI                                                issues for the U.S. insurance industry. It will also look at                                                            demographic and cultural challenges facing the profession as it                                              seeks to diversify employment, how leading insurers are                                                            addressing the issue, and what appears to be working (or not). It                                              will conclude by offering observations on the challenges and path                                            ahead for this issue

9:35 AM – 10:25 AM        GENERAL SESSION - DIVERSITY IN THE BOARDROOM

                                         Women are key drivers of the U.S. economy and their presence in

                                         leadership roles throughout the industry is critical to building a

                                         strong workforce. However, women still make up less than 20% of

                                         insurance industry Board members. The percentage is even lower

                                         for women of color. Listen in as these industry leaders discuss

                                         critical steps to improve diversity in Board rooms and foster

                                         leadership across the value chain to strengthen the economy and

                                         industry as a whole.

                                          matter more than most. From the role of primary voters to the

                                          issues that will bring voters to the polls a year from now, hear early
