Industry seeing what Alliance has known

Elite Ladies of The AllianceMembers of The Alliance know that women are more than welcome in our company, and we celebrate their successes via the Elite Ladies of The Alliance for those who produce more than $100,000 annually. In fact, many of our top producers are female agents who are consistently recognized on stage at our national events because they are among our top leaders.

We have always believed in offering a level playing field for any person who wants to be successful. Now, many women in the industry believe this trend is finally happening across the board.

A recent study released from a poll by the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation found that almost 75 percent of female agents attending the IICF Women in Insurance Global Conference in New York in June think the industry is on the road to reaching gender equality. The poll included a sample of more than 300 women at the conference.

The survey found that 72 percent of women occupying leadership in insurance roles believe the field is “making progress” in regards to gender equality. The study also had 68 percent of the women polled, stating that their organization is working to promote gender diversity.

Other findings from the poll included the following:

When asked about the greatest challenge women face in ascending to leadership, 39 percent of responses pointed to limited opportunities for upward mobility within their company.

Another 30 percent of respondents said the greatest challenge is women not promoting themselves effectively.

37 percent believe that the industry’s biggest improvement toward gender diversity is seen through shifts in corporate culture.

The benefit for networking opportunities was seen as the most important step toward gender equality by 24 percent of the women polled, up from 9 percent in 2014.

The best news for women in The Alliance is that there are no limits with our company. The bar is as high as you want to set it. We’re proud that we’ve been ahead of the industry in terms of advancement opportunities for all people, and we are glad to see the trend is catching on industry wide.

    This is another essence that makes NAA what we are building under the guidance of Andy Albright. I thankyou very much to have created a company that someone can exploit all their ambitions with absolute freedom of no limitations except what lyes underneath themselves. I have 27 years in financial services of which I have been quite successful in every area from bringing over 200 companies public and trading on any of our exchanges, I have helped build 3 different financial firms and trained over 900 new advisors and failing ones, and the last firm “GunnAllen Financial” we built to 5.7 Billion in investor assets. I also hold the one day record in the industry for calling potential new investment clients with 1,037 calls in one day. And, I came across National Agents Alliance by accident on-line and said let me look at this. I left everything and lost it all coming over and suffered a real physical setback while helping move a mechanical bed for my mother to her bedroom. I fell backward and split the back of my head open on cement. After a month in the hospital and 2 weeks in Intensive Care the doctor released me and said Rich it could take up to 2.5 years for you to recover completely. Well, he was right. But during that time I have learned so much about myself through learning NAA and I am now finally moving my God given and trained talents into building a very large business here. I just wanted to express my appreciation for what you are doing and my target is to be 100 million of the Billion in sales we will hit. Rich Kittelstad
