“Business Insurance’s annual Women to Watch identifies and recognizes individuals doing exceptional work in risk management, benefits management, commercial insurance and related fields.
The insurance industry traditionally has been a male-dominated sector, especially at the executive levels. But as we have seen from the women we have profiled in this annual feature throughout the past five years, there is a growing number of talented and dynamic female executives holding key positions within the sector.
As a result, as the years go by, it gets tougher for the panel of BI editors involved in the selection process to narrow down the field of candidates and select only a few honorees from the numerous nominations we receive.
We think you’ll agree, though, that the nominees selected have outstanding credentials and are exceptional leaders in their fields.
This year’s workshop and awards ceremony will be held on December 8-9, 2014 at Marriott Marquis, in New York City.”
MSRM Class of 2013 student, Yvette Connor, was named one of twenty five “Women to Watch” by Business Insurance Magazine in 2013. Yvette Connor is managing director of risk management advisory and insurance services at New York-based international consultant Alvarez & Marsal, a position she assumed in November 2013. This year, she will serve as the moderator for The Business Case for Gender Diversity: Why the Insurance Industry Needs More Women Leaders panel discussion.
