Celebrating DATA’s Successful First Year and Looking Forward to 2024

WCI is very thankful to the various associations and organizations who partner with us every year to provide unique educational opportunities, philanthropic activities, and to advance important initiatives for our industry. One of the most recently established partnerships is with the Diversity and Talent Alliance (DATA).

DATA is a non-profit designed to recognize a diverse and accomplished group of students who have expressed an interest in the Risk Management/Worker’s Compensation Industry and its mission is to develop a pipeline that creates and sustains a diverse workforce and inspires transformative change through partnership, education, and mentorship.

The support of the Risk Management/Workers’ Compensation Industry allowed DATA to have a successful first year and set the foundation for continued growth. Our inaugural student cohorts successfully completed their program, and DATA led diversity panels at WCI in August 2023. We were also able to gather as a group at WCI, and celebrate our student cohorts and those who helped with the inaugural program.

We are currently planning for our 2024 year, and have exciting developments to share soon. We are looking forward to continuing to create a diverse pipeline of talent into the workers’ compensation and risk management industry.

Spread the word

Your continued support is vital to this mission, and we are looking to expand our reach. If you know of colleagues and/or industry professionals who would be interested in joining DATA, please encourage them to reach out and become a member. Our membership interest form is available here.

Save the date

On January 30, 2024, we invite you to attend our first general meeting of the year. Please save the date for this virtual meeting as we are excited to share ways to become involved. More details will be provided as they become available. We invite you to visit our website, and follow us on LinkedIn and Instagram to keep up to date on all of our events.

We will be following up after the first of the year to officially kick off DATA 2024, so keep an eye out for that!

We welcome you to reach out with any questions, concerns, or thoughts on the upcoming year.
