Expanding Insurance Ownership Through Workforce Diversity

2/23/2022 1 - 2 p.m. EST


Who Should Watch

This is a LIMRA/LOMA member benefit webinar. Registration is open to employees of LIMRA/LOMA member companies. Membership will be verified upon registration.


Consumer demand for insurance and financial services is at an all-time high.  At the same time, an employment revolution is impacting how people work, the type of work they want to do and how they prepare for their careers.

This webinar, for LIMRA/LOMA members, will focus on how the insurance industry can grow by attracting more people of color and elevating those already employed. Additionally, we'll make the connection between a diverse workforce and the expansion of life insurance ownership and coverage adequacy for Black Americans. This requires an understanding of their motivations for buying, financial priorities, and opportunities to engage.
