Srinivasan is also passionate about promoting diversity and inclusion in the insurance industry. She is a member of the Association of Professional Insurance Women and The Bridge.
“My perspective as a woman of color in leadership and in a business-facing role distinguishes me significantly from my peers,” she said. “Additionally, my analytical background, underwriting and broker experiences provide me a unique intersection of talent and experience that sets me apart.
“Because of who I am and what I’ve achieved over the course of my professional journey, my ideas and solutions are broader in scale. I solve problems differently, and my ideas and insights are distinct from others at the table. This has been invaluable as the industry is changing as well. Our partners and stakeholders are becoming more diverse in all areas of the business.”
