We are very pleased to share the news that Susie Colley, the director and owner of Westcountry Health Care has been shortlisted for an award at the 2019 Women in Insurance Awards.
Susie has been nominated for an award within the ‘Risk Professional of the Year’ category, which is open to women working in risk management, risk assessment or risk mitigation role the UK general insurance industry whether for a business, public sector body, broker, insurer, consultancy or service provider.
The insurance industry has made significant strides to create a genuinely diverse, equal opportunities sector, but the consensus is there is still a long way to go, especially when it comes to narrowing the gender pay gap, pushing for more flexible working arrangements, and increasing the number of women in senior positions.
Those who make it to the top are outstanding role models but we all know there are still far too few women at the top. These awards will honour the inspiring achievements of women across all parts of the general insurance sector and will also help shape the discussion around how we can improve diversity within the sector as we highlight some of the most forward-thinking initiatives.
The ceremony takes places on Tuesday 26th November at the Royal Lancaster in London.
We will provide updates on the outcome of the ceremony on our blog and social media pages after the event.
