The insurance industry – long considered exclusive and non-diverse – is in flux, says Nichole Barnes Marshall, global head of inclusion at Aon.

While women – and other workplace minorities – have not always had a seat at the insurance table, Marshall says that’s finally changing. In fact, she says, right now is an exciting time to be a part of the industry.

“So the work that I’m doing, it’s not just at Aon, I know my counterparts and direct peers in brokerages, as well as all of our carriers … are making commitments to how they want to move the industry forward. This really, truly is an industry-wide effort,” she says.
