Celebrating Navacord’s Remarkable Women – Jing Wang
What does the 2021 International Women’s Day slogan, #Choosetochallenge mean for you in your work life?
It means continued awareness to me. Though we have come a long way to where we are today, there is still more to do. We should never stand still.
You’re currently, VP Finance at Navacord. Is this role what you expected to be in when you started in the workforce? How did it change? Tell us about your journey.
I got thrown into the Insurance industry when I started my public audit days with a big insurance company as my largest client, and it’s been quite the journey!
What barriers have you faced, as a woman, in becoming successful in your field? How did you overcome them?
The biggest barrier I have had to overcome is myself. Be bold enough to ask for things that you need to build yourself up for success, being strong enough to ask for help, and being confident enough to know your worth. I have been lucky to have both incredible men and women support me in my career!
Based on your own experience, what advice would you give to women considering jumping into the insurance industry?
There’s a lot more women in this industry now than you think! Be bold, be brave, be yourself!
