  • Networking coffee break
  • Creating a space for everyone

    It takes one leader to start a shift in a company’s culture – to encourage active participation by all members of your team, to build an inclusive culture, and to support the celebration of diversity. This session will highlight effective and innovative strategies for creating a workplace that is both welcoming and empowering – and the prominent role you can play in driving them.

    • Building a supportive environment for both emerging and established leaders in insurance: What does it take?
    • What are the best strategies for crafting a hybrid culture that encourages participation by everyone?
    • Communication that fosters openness and empowers your team
  • Celebrate the resilience of women in insurance

Emma will share stories of her early days in start-ups and her perspective as she built her own Risk Team at At-Bay. Discover how professional opportunities, while also becoming a new mother, have enlightened Emma to appreciate the resilient spirit of women in insurance.

  • Pausing to focus on presence, courage, & mindfulness

    In our professional lives we sometimes try to be all things to all people. However, this is not a sustainable approach to professional development and happiness at work. In this session, we will take some time to learn how presence, courage, & mindfulness can uniquely come together to make our careers more fulfilling and successful – as a whole.
