Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Identities & Allyship in Actuarial Workplaces



Being an LGBTQ+ professional isn’t always easy. In this gathering of LGBTQ+ folks and Allies, let’s unpack that. As an industry, we’ve made huge strides (especially in the past few years), but there is still much more progress to be made. In this session, we will discuss challenges and triumphs of the LGBTQ+ community in actuarial workplaces. You will hear from actuaries actively involved in Diversity & Inclusion initiatives in the insurance industry and beyond. Come ready to participate!
