Episode 2: “Women in Insurance” Series with Lisa Forbes

To celebrate International Women’s Day today, and to continue to celebrate women throughout the year, we are excited to announce our new podcast series: “Women in Insurance”. Starting today and throughout the year, we will spotlight women working in the insurance sector. Our goal is to highlight a variety of experiences, career choices, and successes.

In this episode, Lisa Forbes, Chief Financial Officer at Manulife Canada, chats with Josée Rheault, Executive Vice President of Operations at Assuris and answers the following 3 questions:

  • What led you to a career in the insurance industry?
  • What kept you engaged in our industry?
  • What do you see for the future of women in our industry?
