Sabrina Pyneedamdy Co-Chair Aon
I am a Project Manager in the UK Change function at Aon. I believe that D&I and Equality go hand in hand. Aiming for gender equality in an industry that was once notorious for being known as an ‘old boys club’ will not be easy. The correlation between gender diversity and improved financial performance, market share, innovation and group performance generally hold true, the Insurance industry has made significant improvement over the last few years but there’s a way to go before gender parity reaches a happy equilibrium. I am honoured to be part of a network that represents men and women and is a driving force for progression, development and change. I also have an active role in the Gender IQ network and the Multicultural Network at Aon.
Louisa Lombardo Co-Chair Chubb
Working as part of the GIN committee is a perfect complement to my day-job as Head of Diversity and Inclusion at Chubb. It’s fantastic to see the increased engagement around D&I over the past few years and I believe that collaboration across the insurance industry, through networks such as GIN, will play a vital role in driving change in gender balance and representation at a senior level. I have a background in Recruitment and enjoy travelling and learning new languages.
Samantha Eustace Zurich
I work at Zurich covering PR, Public Affairs and CSR. Outside of work, I love spending time with my family, partner and close friends whilst often also spending too much time in the gym! Diversity is something I have always been keen to get involved in; GIN is a way of bringing together like minded individuals in the industry to influence a change - maybe even a revolution!
Frances Loring - Hiscox
I work at Hiscox looking after our Prudential compliance and consulting on BoE policy. On the GIN committee, my role is as a Comms lead. We are constantly looking at how we can deliver our message in a new and engaging way. I’m very passionate about cementing equal opportunities in the workplace. In my spare time I love travelling, playing netball and running.
Sharon Glynn - Travelers
I work at Travelers as a Senior Development Underwriter in our Bond and Specialty Insurance Team. I am also a member of our European Diversity and Inclusion Network. Inclusion is very important to me, I believe we should seek out ways to ensure that differences are acknowledged and celebrated and everyone should have equal opportunity. Outside work I enjoy spending time with friends and family, seeking out new experiences and visiting new places.
Alina Jipa - RSA
I work at RSA as a Change Manager for the Global Risk Solutions business. As part of the GIN committee I work in partnership with Sharon to organise our Events for the year. GIN Events are important for the insurance industry; through these, we raise awareness about gender balance topics and they represents an opportunity for our members to learn, develop and expand their insurance network. Outside of work I enjoy travelling, exploring new places and cuisines, running and exercising.
