Insurance Business America (IBA) has officially opened the nomination process for its Elite Women 2024 initiative. This program aims to recognize and celebrate 100 female leaders who have made significant contributions to the insurance industry. The nominations are open until Friday, October 13, and the winners will be announced in March 2024 to coincide with International Women’s Day. This article provides a detailed overview of the nomination process, the criteria for selection, and the organizations involved in the evaluation of candidates.
The Elite Women 2024 initiative seeks to identify women who have had a substantial impact on the insurance industry. Nominees should have demonstrated noteworthy achievements within the past 12 months. These could range from innovative solutions to leadership roles in shaping industry trends. Both self-nominations and nominations by peers or colleagues are accepted.
To submit a nomination, individuals must complete a specific form detailing the nominee’s relevant accomplishments over the past year. If a candidate is nominated by someone else, they will receive a self-nomination form as part of the selection process. This ensures that all pertinent information is captured accurately for evaluation.
The selection of winners will be facilitated by an independent advisory panel comprising representatives from various industry organizations. These include:
- American Property Casualty Insurance Association (APCIA)
- Asian American Insurance Networks
- Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers
- HUB International
- Latin American Association of Insurance Agencies (LAAIA)
- National African American Insurance Association (NAAIA)
The list of Elite Women will be published on Insurance Business America’s website in March 2024. This timing is strategically aligned with International Women’s Day, providing an opportune moment to celebrate the achievements of female leaders in the insurance sector.
The Elite Women 2024 initiative by Insurance Business America serves as a significant platform for recognizing the contributions of women in the insurance industry. With a comprehensive nomination and evaluation process, the program aims to identify and honor those who have made a meaningful impact in their respective roles. As the deadline for nominations approaches, this initiative underscores the importance of female leadership and the ongoing efforts to achieve gender diversity in the industry.
