Resources to Empower Women and Drive the Channel Forward

Empowering women in insurance agencies will drive future success for the entire independent agent channel.

With women making up more than one half of agency employees but less than one third of owners and principals, there are tremendous opportunities for agencies to tap into the potential of female employees, invest in their career development and consider them for perpetuation plans.

As shown in this report, hiring and promoting women is good for business. Offering opportunities for career growth to all employees can help agencies attract and retain top talent and bridge the talent gap.

Independent agencies are great places for women, but there are opportunities to create more inclusive agency cultures that will drive success for every employee and for the agency as a whole.
