Pandemic burnout had massive impact on everyone, but women, as their families’ primary caretakers, shouldered a bigger burden. In this new era, juggling work and personal life is nothing less than a feat for women.

Also, the fact that women face both conscious and unconscious bias at work leading to pay equity discrepancies, cannot go unnoticed. As per CNBC, finance and insurance is among the top 5 industries with the largest pay gap between men and women in 2022, where women only take home 0.77 cents for every dollar a man makes.

Despite the barriers, women in insurance and other financial sectors have been showing resilience and strived for success. For this, they deserve admiration, respect, and most of all equity.
