As part of the Inspirational Women Series, hosted by The British Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, Sian Fisher, CEO of the CII, gave a talk to delegates about the reality of a career as a women in insurance.
Ms Fisher shared a brief story of her own journey in the profession, before talking about the hidden potential of a diverse workforce and how we can create a more inclusive environment of gender equality.
Delegates were also told about the work the CII is doing with their HeforShe campaign in the UK, where professionals are asked to make simple, achievable personal commitments to improving gender parity to help drive the changes into the industry.
Vienne CC Lee, CEO and founder of Finance Mandarin, attended the event. She said: "Sian Fisher has become a real role model for women in the insurance industry and it is clear that education, and campaigns like HeForShe, are a critical driving force to make things happen."
