Insurance Innovation is NOT an oxymoron

As #InsuranceCareersMonth gets rolling, it is important to recognize that the risk management and insurance (RMI) industry is very active in developing innovations that keep people and property safer and improve the customer experience.  In spite of the stereotypical perception that insurance is reluctant to change and “clings to its paper,” there are some amazing things happening in the industry.  Although the industry continues to require new talent for claims, underwriting, and sales/marketing, some of the hottest RMI career opportunities exist among the science/technology/engineering/math (STEM) disciplines.
