About 2024 Insurance Business Elite Women:
Insurance Business invited industry professionals from across Canada to nominate exceptional female leaders for the fourth annual Elite Women list. Nominators were asked to provide details of their nominee’s achievements and initiatives over the past 12 months, including specific examples of their professional accomplishments and contributions to the industry.

To select the winners, the IBC team relied on the help of an independent and esteemed panel of judges that included MaryKate Townsend of the Canadian Association of Managing General Agents, Kesha Christie of Willis Towers Watson, Jonathan Weekes, CRISC of Hub International Canada, Ingrid Wilson of the Canadian Association of Black Insurance Professionals and Shirley Chisholm of the Ebony Women International Insurance Network.

The judges and the IBC team reviewed all nominations, examining how each individual had made a meaningful contribution to the industry, to whittle down the list to the final 54 Elite Women. To avoid conflicts of interest, self-voting and voting for relatives were prohibited.
