The Big Interview
Executive GM, broker business, Australian business
Donna Walker is one of the highest profile female leaders in the industry in Australia. Her impressive career has included 17 years with CGU and three years lecturing at the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Actuarial Studies. Currently, Walker chairs IAG’s Diversity and Inclusion Action Group which, among its key aims, focuses on how to increase the number of women working in senior leadership roles across the organisation. Walker is a firm believer that diversity of thought in companies can not only lead to better decision-making, but stronger businesses. Last year, IAG’s endeavours to foster a more inclusive workplace were recognised when it took home ‘Women’s employer of the year’ at the Australian Insurance Industry Awards. Walker is precisely the kind of leader the industry should look to for thought leadership in its efforts to create truly diverse and inclusive workplaces.
