The Independent Women in Insurance Network (iWIN) will enable industry professionals to network and mentor each other

The Worshipful Company of Insurers (WCI) has launched a new Independent Women in Insurance Network (iWIN).

iWIN will create a forum for women in the industry to network and mentor each other.

The inaugural event on Tuesday was hosted by the Master of the WCI and Hiscox chief executive Bronek Masojada and iWIN steering committee chair Barbara Merry.

Merry said: “The diversity agenda is about fairness and ensuring that individuals are not hampered in their development through bias or prejudice.  It is also a crucial business imperative, facilitating improved business performance through superior decision making.”

Masojada added: “The launch of the iWIN forum builds on the success of the insurance non-executive director (iNED) forum - both of which are part of the WCI’s mission to be the premier pan-industry body for individuals active in the business of insurance.”
