GIN collaborates with the Insurance Supper Club

On 22nd November GIN hosted their first event in collaboration with the Insurance Supper Club, sponsored by Chubb.  The purpose of our collaborative event was to provide our GIN members access to some of the most senior women in our industry.  Many of the ISC members were able to provide GIN members with advice and tools to help them to develop within the industry. The ISC members were thrilled to see the ambition of the next generation in the industry.

Some quotes from GIN attendees;

“Well done for a beautifully organised evening yesterday! I really enjoyed it, and had a chance to ask all my questions. These evenings give us a chance to share experiences, and that is very powerful. And also – to reflect and refresh our thinking. I found it really useful. Thank you for including me, and I hope to one day to be able to give back and contribute to the community!” 

“A great evening with inspirational women discussing our past, our present and our future. I’ve learnt a lot from everyone’s unique journey in insurance; their challenges and successes. Really looking forward to taking the network out of the dinner room."

“The energy in the room was great, and I thought the mentors did a brilliant job at facilitating meaningful discussions.”

“It was a brilliant event. One of the best GIN events. I was able to make some good connections and received some valuable advice and tips. Would be great to have more events like this or similar. Well done”

GIN co-chairs, Louisa Lombardo and Sabrina Pyneeandy commented; “It was incredibly inspiring to unite our future leaders of tomorrow with Supper Club members who were armed with a myriad of tools, experience, advice and guidance. By uniting our networks we are bridging the gap by sharing experiences, mentoring and developing future generations. Despite the magnitude of talent in the room, each story was relatable and GIN members left feeling empowered and inspired. A special thank you to the Supper Club members who dedicated their time and to Chubb for sponsoring the evening. We hope we can collaborate on future events to continue to support gender inclusion in insurance.”

Unconscious Bias and MBTI

Our unconscious biases and assumptions have a big impact on whether to include or exclude others from many aspects of working and personal lives.
Mandy Geal of Learning Partners, an expert in neuroscience of behavioural change, will reveal some of the personality preferences (using MBTI) that drive our ways of working and feed unconscious biases. She will show you how to guard against negative biases, value differences, and share some tips to promote collaborative working and inclusion.

Lunch will be included.

Gender Pay Gap Explained

By April 2018, any employers with 250 employees or more were required  to publish their Gender Pay Gap data. To mark this, GIN collaborated with the CII, the Insurance Supper Club, RPC, SCOR and Aon to deliver an interactive session which told us all we needed to know about how to explain those Gender Pay gap disclosures. 

We learnt how the gap is measured, how company numbers compare across the market and what companies are doing to bring parity to their pay. Invitees were encouraged to bring along a pipeline woman or male colleague from their respective networks and as a result we got a great crowd.

A huge thanks to our fantastic panel; Patrick Brodie, Partner, RPC, Jon Terry, Partner, PWC, Tali Shlomo, People Engagement Director, CII, Barbara Schonhofer, Founder & CEO, ISC & Schonhofer and to our sponsor Aon for hosting such an informative event.

Be your boldest self - Imposter syndrome

“Be your boldest self” was the message of the recent GIN event hosted at Travelers. The event centred on identifying what Imposter Syndrome is and how to recognise it.

The interactive event explored how your body language can affect your emotions and behaviour and encouraged us to find practical solutions, to overcome the imposter syndrome at work and in everyday life. Inspired by Amy Cuddy’s work, Presence : Bringing your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges we learnt how adopting power poses can bring about hormonal and behavioural changes which may result in increased feelings of power.
