ISC was delighted to see over 100 insurance professionals gather at the Aon centre on 22 November to celebrate International Men’s Day at our ISC Winter Dinner 2016: Balance and Equality in Future Markets.
The evening was a resounding success and a suitable follow on to the Insuring Women’s Futures (IWF) launch of HeForShe at Lloyd’s Old Library in Sept of this year. The event demonstrated the achievements which can be had when the networks collaborate. Heartfelt thanks go out to our Aon hosts: Simon Gander, Executive Director, Aon UK Limited, Julie Page, Managing Director, Aon Risk Solutions National and ISC Committee Member and ISC committee member and to the WIN Co Chairs Elisha St Hilaire and Leonora Siccardi.
The event was inspirational due to our guest speaker Elizabeth Nyamayaro, Senior Advisor to Under Secretary-General UN Women and Founder of HeForShe who made everyone pause and think. We enjoyed seeing our senior leaders engage and complete their commitments in support of HeforShe at the IWF photo booth.
Simon Gander said ‘‘It was a privilege to host the ISC event at the Aon Centre. The momentum created by combining UN Women in the form of the HeForShe campaign with Insuring Women’s Futures and the ISC was inspiring. Let’s make the commitments a reality!’’
“Another great evening organised by the ISC. I just loved hearing from the inspiration and brains behind the UN Women #HeForShe campaign Elizabeth Nyamayaro @e_nyamayaro. She really brought it to life.” Inga Beale, CEO, Lloyd’s of London
