The Women of the SIFM provides opportunities to build one’s network and foster meaningful relationships, to encourage an open dialogue among members including providing advice on leadership behaviors, alternative issue resolution and support in advancing and enriching each other’s career.
Meetings are scheduled quarterly in January, May, July and November and are held at locations in the Metro New York area. To minimize disruption of attendees’ workday, meetings are held early morning. Each meeting includes breakfast and networking opportunities followed by a program.

How Diversity Drives Innovation
Everyone wants to be thought of as innovative. However, true innovation requires a great deal of thoughtful effort, getting comfortable with the uncomfortable and a determination to ensure all voices within an organization are heard.
The insurance industry has begun to address the need for greater innovation, while recognizing that it can only be created by incorporating the experience and thinking of a diverse workforce.
Bo Young Lee will describe how to harness a diverse workforce to drive creativity and innovation on your teams and in your companies.
According to Bo, “Organizations in the insurance industry are increasingly creating more open forum dialogues and crowd sourcing ideas.”
She will discuss the challenges that are stifling insurance innovation and the remedies that successful organizations are using to drive innovation.
