Heffernan launches women's resource group

Heffernan Insurance Brokers, one of the largest full-service, independent brokerages in the US, has announced the formation of a new resource group called Women Empowered (WE).

WE is open to all interested in participating. The group aims to increase participants’ confidence and competence, encourage a positive self-brand, provide an opportunity to expand their network, support career planning, and offer guidance on the alignment of work and life goals.

WE is the next iteration of the Women of Influence Group founded at Heffernan Group by Leticia Trevino, Elizabeth Bishop and Jennifer Mahoney, the company said.

“As women, we have so much to offer,” said Mahoney, chief operations officer at Heffernan Insurance Brokers. “WE is focused on creating opportunities and forums for us to share, learn and grow as we strive to be the best versions of ourselves.”

“We are all enriched by providing a place and space for women from different backgrounds to come together and support each other along life’s journeys while educating men on the challenges women face,” said Trevino, chief insurance compliance officer at Heffernan.
