Conyers Dill & Pearman director Sophia Greaves will be part of a panel discussing women in the captive industry at the Bermuda Captive Conference next week.

Diversity is the theme of this year’s conference, which is now in its fourteenth year.

Ms Greaves and two other female leaders will share their professional journeys, success strategies, and approaches to career progression.

The panel moderator is Dawn Simons, executive vice-president, Aon, and the other panellists are Stacy Apter, assistant treasurer, The Coca Cola Company, and Laurie Forkas, senior assistant general counsel, Omega Indemnity (Bermuda) Limited.

Ms Greaves said: “Notwithstanding the significant strides made by women in the financial services sector, there remain a number of barriers to female leadership in the industry.

“Homogenisation of the ‘female experience’ can be obstructive across many industries. Like our male counterparts, concepts of ‘success’ and ‘leadership’ for women are unique to the individual. There exists a misconception that all women want the same thing out of their careers and paths to leadership. Diversity of experience and career expectations, as well as valuing that diversity, are critical to any discussion regarding female leadership and empowerment.”

Conyers is a sponsor of the Bermuda Captive Conference, which takes place from Monday to Wednesday at the Fairmont Southampton. The panel titled “Women in the captive industry: empowering industry awareness” is on Monday, starting at 4.30pm.
