Chief Product Development Officer Anna Gincherman will be participating at the World Bank Live event, “Increasing Women’s Financial Protection – What Can Insurance Do?” on Thursday, April 20 at 10:00 AM ET in Washington D.C.

Event Description: The socioeconomic status of women across the world is rising. They earn more and their power to influence household spending is increasing. Yet, their ability to mitigate financial risk for themselves, their assets, and their families remains low. Participants will discuss the role the insurance industry and its stakeholders can play in increasing financial protection for women from all income levels, while strengthening their participation in the economy.
