Embracing a More Inclusive Future

How one group helped the insurance industry adapt

When the Casualty Actuarial Society launched its series of diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) research papers in 2022, DE&I wasn't a new concept to the professional association. Like many associations, CAS had DE&I policies and initiatives and a staff position dedicated to DE&I.
