ISC Group 

The ISC Group is a global business community for women operating in, or involved with, insurance.

We support women in insurance by providing an international platform that unites women with their peers, to discuss business related issues and identify the solutions. In doing so, we have created a community of women with strong business relationships, spanning across the industry as a whole.

We are a Community Interest Company (CIC); everything we do is aimed at benefiting our profession and aiding better business results.

Our objectives:

  • Engage with women at all levels in the insurance industry, and embolden us all to find our voice on professional issue
  • Assist women working at all levels in the insurance industry through mutual guidance and support on professional issue
  • Encourage communication between different generations of women and in so doing close the seniority gap and inspire future generations
  • Promote social responsibility and encourage the industry to be more empathetic and inclusive to all

History:

The ISC Group initially started as a business network for senior female executives in insurance in 2008. Through the intimate and structured approach to its events, ISC Group developed into a global business community uniting females from insurance across the world. 

At the beginning of 2019, ISC Group branched out and created Aspire Membership (Previously known as HTS Stargate) for high potential females in the Insurance industry to give this key talent the same opportunities as the senior women.  ISC Group aims to give this group of talented women the same opportunities to unite with peers across the market, as well as offering them the resource of the Executive members who act as mentors.

Members get access to our online Hub and participate in events organised by the ISC Group or its members.

Soft Skills Training
A 90min coaching-led session which offers a rare opportunity to work on your career goals and meet a small group of peers at the same life-stage in a safe, non-judgemental environment, away from your normal network.

The sessions focus on topics and skills which many of our members feel they struggle with or need help in developing. Previous events have worked on negotiation, navigating office politics and preparing for parental leave.

Executive Insights 
Every other month, we are inviting a market CEO to debrief our members on what happened in their last Board meeting. They will discuss what was on the agenda, the risks the business is currently facing and how they plan to overcome these obstacles. These sessions are also a great opportunity to ask those burning questions to a CEO.
