A mid-year message from Insuring Ohio Futures

August 22nd, 2019

The first six months of 2019 have been a whirlwind of activity for Insuring Ohio Futures. 

We were excited to add three new industry partners – Buckeye Insurance Group, The Cincinnati Insurance Companies and National Interstate Insurance – and a brand new education partner, Heidelberg University. Welcome aboard!

Other highlights of the year so far:

Insuring Ohio Futurescontinued to host and partner on key events, including the Workforce and Education Conference and the Insurance HR Summit. Altogether, events drew more than 730 people to hear how the industry is a source of exciting and rewarding careers.

We launched the new Insurance Innovators Video Series, which reached more than 3,000 viewers on YouTube, and a social media campaign during Insurance Careers Month that more than doubled our reach on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. 

Our Insurance Industry Resource Council members stepped up to the plate by participating in activities and events such as the Insurance Nerds podcast, which reached more than 800 industry professionals, and company tours. 

We engaged with 12 colleges and universities and nearly 30 insurance companies via events, meetings, and other activities. Our marketing support for the 2019 Risky Run helped raise thousands of dollars for Gamma Iota Sigma chapters in Ohio.

Meanwhile, students enrolled in RMI programs at our partner universities grew to 372, up from zero in 2011, when we began. Seventy-one of them graduated in the spring.

More details about these successes are provided in the attached Insuring Ohio Futures 2019 Mid-Year Report. We hope you’ll take time to learn how Insuring Ohio Futures is continuing to bring its message to Ohioans looking for jobs in a vibrant, economically vital, and socially relevant industry.
