WII is issuing a call to action, encouraging the insurance industry's senior leaders and HR professionals to join and include their organizations in this first-of-its-kind research and important data gathering exercise.
The WII 2019 data collection will ask companies to share valuable information about employee demographics, diversity and inclusion programs, and gender parity initiatives.
To provide a deep and comprehensive view of issues and opportunities for women in the insurance industry, the survey will collect detailed information about the numbers of men and women employed throughout the industry, looking at their age ranges, highest education completed, and ethnic groups. It will further examine how many women hold management positions, and what issues are driving inequality in the workplace. All responses will be kept strictly anonymous, allowing organizations to provide candid responses.
"As an organization, we are committed to speaking as a collective voice for women in insurance and acting as an instrument for change," said
"Gender inequality in general, and at leadership levels specifically, is a critical issue in the corporate world. To tackle it effectively, we need to gather, analyze, and report on granular and reliable data," said
For more information or to participate in the survey, HR professionals should contact [email protected].
