Sexual harassment in insurance: time’s up

For such a progressive, ambitious and modern-minded industry, it’s a real shame that sexual harassment – as well as other examples of institutionalised sexism – remains an issue in the world of insurance.

The fight is far from over, however.

And it continues at a new conference Women in Insurance – hitting Toronto on May 15 – where sexual harassment is just one of the issues under discussion from the industry’s top experts.
