“Women in Reinsurance” Annual Event
The annual Women in ReinsuranceTM(WIRTM) networking event was held on October 31, 2014. WIR regularly sponsors events of interest to professional women in the reinsurance industry and fosters networking and information sharing.
At the 2014 WIR event, Ryckman, author of the acclaimed STILETTO NETWORK: Inside the Women’s Power Circles That Are Changing the Face of Business, will discuss how women can create and mobilize their own networks, both within and outside their organizations, for career advancement and results. She will explain how, once created, these networks steer conversation and content for maximum business impact; how they help members script difficult conversations around promotion, compensation, and risk; and how they enable women to promote themselves and each other to become more visible leaders.
Ryckman’s mission is identifying and catalyzing a powerful nationwide trend – female success and advancement. More women are running major companies than ever before. While still far too few in number, these women are the forerunners of a radical shift in power. Recently, Stiletto Network groups have been meeting across industries and cities providing women with networks to celebrate and unwind, debate and compare notes.
