Zurich Insurance sponsors 5th Annual Executive Women’s Day at the Zurich Classic

New Orleans, March 6, 2018

This year’s event celebrates women who are working together to inspire confidence as “the firsts” in their field.

Zurich Insurance will sponsor the 5th Annual Executive Women’s Day at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, an event for women leaders in New Orleans to explore innovative ways of working together to inspire confidence in each other and the community at large.

This year’s theme will be “the firsts”.

The session will start with an inspiring keynote address from a woman who was first in her field. In addition, a diverse panel of leaders will discuss how they successfully tackled the challenges they faced as the “firsts” within their industries. This robust discussion will be moderated by the first woman CEO for Zurich North America, Kathleen Savio.

“Women’s voices are being heard more than ever before, due, in part, to strong women openly sharing their experiences and creating safe environments for others to do the same,” Savio said. “Someone has to go first, and we are honored to celebrate women who are forging new paths forward during Executive Women’s Day at the Zurich Classic.”

For the first time, the half-day event will be held at the Roosevelt Hotel New Orleans on Tuesday, April 24, 2018. Table and ticket sales become available on Monday, March 12 from the Fore!Kids Foundation by going to ZurichGolf Classic.com > Tickets > Special Offers.
