NFP Extends Partnership with GenHERation to Advance Career Opportunities for Young Professional Women
In the fourth year of their relationship, NFP will host GenHERation Discovery Days in Austin and Charlotte offices
NEW YORK – June 26, 2019 – NFP, a leading insurance broker and consultant that provides property and casualty, corporate benefits, retirement, and individual solutions, is again partnering with GenHERation, a network where young women and companies connect, to advance career opportunities for young millennial women and the rising Gen Z. In the fourth year of their relationship, NFP will host Discovery Days in its Austin and Charlotte offices on June 26 and July 22, respectively.
GenHERation Discovery Days are immersive day trips that connect high school and college women with some of the most innovative companies in America to close the gender career achievement gap. NFP is one of four stops along GenHERation’s tour of companies in both the Austin and Charlotte markets. Each NFP office will open its doors to provide opportunities for participants to network with key executives, join skill-building workshops, and engage in panel discussions.
"The insurance field offers exciting and rewarding career paths, and NFP is an especially innovative company that attracts young professionals across disciplines," said GenHERation founder and CEO Katlyn Grasso. "We are excited to continue our partnership, enabling young women to access the industry along with career insights from NFP’s top leaders. We expect program participants to again leave NFP feeling more empowered than ever to enter historically male-dominated professions, and join others who went on to intern with NFP."
This fall, NFP will also speak at Campus Connection tours in additional cities and lead two financial education workshops. Momentum in the relationship remains strong. In 2016, NFP sent one leader as a hop-on hop-off speaker along the New York City bus tour. In 2017, NFP sent additional leaders as speakers on bus tours across seven cities, and sponsored a competitive project that rewarded the top entrant with mentoring sessions. In 2018, NFP’s Austin office hosted its first Discovery Day, sponsoring tickets for current interns and employees’ daughters to attend.
"NFP and GenHERation are continuing an amazing journey to break down gender barriers," said Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer Kim Davis. "Diverse perspectives lead to better decisions that fuel the overall advancement and growth of our organization. Diversity and inclusion is a top priority for NFP, and GenHERation is an ideal partner for us as we engage the next generation of female talent, provide the best possible footing to start their careers, and see the impact of their contributions."
"Our continued collaboration with GenHERation reflects our commitment to attract and retain women across all business lines and at all levels of the company, from star interns to the executive leadership team," said Chairman and CEO of NFP, Doug Hammond.
