Thriving Together: Embracing a Multigenerational Workforce
As Generation Z enters the workforce, five generations are working side-by-side for the first time. Risk management and insurance organizations face the challenge of motivating and engaging individuals that span from Gen Z to Traditionalists, while avoiding generational conflict. In this session, hear how organizations can cultivate a generationally diverse workforce and harness a multitude of strengths by cultivating mutual respect, trust and understanding among members of each generation. Ultimately, risk management and insurance organizations are primed to benefit from diversity of thought and perspectives.
Neurodiversity: A Closer Look
Neurodiversity refers to the diversity of human brains, and considers differences in how our brains are "wired" as simply another natural variation in humans. It is often used to specifically cover autism, ADHD, dyslexia and dyspraxia, amongst others. Rather than thinking there is something wrong or problematic when some people don't operate similarly to others, neurodiversity embraces the differences in brain function and behavioral traits as a natural element of the diversity of the human population. This webinar is for anyone interested in learning more about neurodiversity, whether HR professionals, educators, advocates or recruiters. Join us for this conversation with industry professionals as they share their professional and personal experiences.
Women’s History Month: Ceiling Breakers and Change Makers
History Month is a time to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions of all women in the risk management and insurance industry, including those that have broken down barriers and inspired innovation. Studies have shown that women outnumber men in the insurance industry, and companies that have more gender diversity on their executive teams are more profitable when compared to companies without. While great progress has been made in gender equality, there is still a long way to go to ensure that the lived experience of women in the industry is heard and understood and that diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging remain a priority in company policies and practices. During this panel discussion, the speakers discuss the successes and challenges that they have endured, as well as the work that the risk management and insurance industry can do to better support and increase the representation of women.
