Partner Anoush Holaday will represent WSHB on a compelling panel at the upcoming 2023 CLM Annual Conference in Tampa, Florida. The panel, "Gender and Diversity in the Claims and Litigation Profession," will take place on March 30, 2023, at 2:00-3:00 p.m. Holaday will be joined by fellow industry and thought leaders in this important discussion: Josephine Au of Suffolk Construction, Sarah Bishop of SECURA Insurance, Courtney Winzeler, and Jane Young.

This highly-anticipated session of the CLM Annual Conference will examine what’s working in the insurance and legal professions with diversity and inclusion efforts, including effects on non-DEI corporate metrics. The discussion will deeply dive into disparate burnout, pay, and mentorship, including advice to professionals and employers on addressing and overcoming these challenges. Topics also include the changing dynamic with various career challenges, gender-related experiences, visibility, confidence, flexibility, benefits and mentorship.
