Women's Impact in the Insurance Industry

As the world celebrates International Women's Day under the 2024 theme of "Inspire Inclusion," it's a moment to reflect on the strides made in the insurance industry towards gender diversity and equality. From its historical roots to the present day, women have been breaking barriers and making significant contributions to an industry that continues to evolve.

Historically, the insurance sector has seen a remarkable transformation in terms of gender representation. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, when women's participation in the workforce was limited, some pioneering organisations hired their first female agents. Today, the industry proudly boasts a workforce where women make up 60%, a testament to the progress achieved over the past century.

At McLarens, we are witnessing the tangible and positive impact of women in the industry. With 55% of our staff being women, we are dedicated to creating an environment where talent thrives irrespective of gender.

Moreover, our commitment extends to leadership representation, with 37.5% of women in our Senior Leadership Team and 59% in team and branch management positions. These figures underscore our belief in the importance of empowering women in leadership roles, driving innovation and excellence within our organisation.
