Business insurance on Thursday named the 2022 winners of its annual Women to Watch awards program.
Business insurance started the program in 2006 to recognize women leaders who are doing outstanding work in risk management and commercial insurance. From the beginning, the program has recognized winners working around the world, and in 2017 the publication expanded the awards to include a separate program specifically for female executives in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Business insurance readers nominated candidates for Women to Watch, and a panel of Business insurance the editors selected the awardees based on these nominations.
