Zurich North America Continues Membership with Ellevate Network to Support its D&I Initiative Share Article


Ellevate today announces that Zurich North America has renewed its relationship with Ellevate Network, the leading network for professional women. This professional development resources were first made available to Zurich employees in 2018 through the global insurer’s Women’s Innovation Network (WIN), a Zurich employee resource group open to all employees. WIN aims to support gender equity at Zurich by providing a professional network for inspiration, development, and building connections with colleagues.

“Zurich is committed to creating a workplace environment that nurtures its people and sees the value that diverse and inclusive teams bring to its organization and the insurance industry,” said Daniel Kedish, Director of Diversity & Inclusion for Zurich North America. “We know diversity and inclusion is a business imperative, and our relationship with Ellevate is one way we continue to support our commitment to D&I for Zurich employees.”

Through the relationship with Ellevate, Zurich’s women employees have an additional opportunity to form meaningful connections with other professional women in the Network, participate in Ellevate’s virtual leadership development program, Squads, as well as build and hone their professional development skills to help advance their careers. Members have access to Ellevate’s tools and resources, including webinars, articles, and podcasts. Zurich will also co-host two Ellevate events as part of its second-year relationship.

“We're thrilled to be working with Zurich North America and WIN for the second year,” said Ellevate Network CEO Kristy Wallace. “Over the past year, Zurich has shown a commitment to diversity and inclusion in their organization and beyond, supporting WIN and providing women employees with the resources and support needed to succeed. It’s a pleasure to collaborate with a company that cares about their employees, believes in cultivating their potential and working toward a brighter future.”

WIN is focused on creating insights into business success while providing networking opportunities with accomplished colleagues and industry experts. While women are the main audience, men are also welcome to get involved, as many issues affect both. The group is open to all current Zurich employees. Zurich’s WIN has membership at their Corporate Center in Zurich, Switzerland, in more than 40 locations across North America, and in over 25 countries around the world. WIN events often offer live online participation from Zurich offices across North America.
