Talent and Development

Advance your career with an insurance master class

  • What emerging risks do insurance professionals need to know about?
  • How are underwriters approaching specialty insurance issues?
  • What are the insurance implications of major events, like political conventions and disease outbreaks?

ISOP's Insurance Symposium Series provides the insurance community with exclusive answers to these questions—as well as an exploration of many more current and future issues so members can stay ahead of the curve.

These aren't vanilla CE classes or "education by PowerPoint." Rather they are unique opportunities to listen to subject matter exerts and share ideas with others to open new opportunities, improve competencies and achieve a broader understanding of relevant issues and challenges. With expert speakers providing a deep, focused look at critical insurance topics, ISOP members are provided with opportunities to further develop their talents and advance their careers.

Supporting Insurance & Risk Management Students

Philadelphia is recognized as the national hub for risk management and insurance higher education. The Insurance Society of Philadelphia is proud to partner with three of the top five nationally ranked collegiate risk management programs, according to a September 2015 U.S. News & World Report ranking of colleges. Students who receive scholarship funding and internship assistance from ISOP attend area colleges including University of Pennsylvania, St. Joseph’s University and Temple University.

Since 2001, ISOP has raised $221,000 for the 100th Anniversary Scholarship fund, which was established to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Society. At events throughout the year, ISOP raises money through ticket sales to fund scholarships exclusively for students studying risk management and insurance in the region.

ISOP also provides students with support for internships and access to the industry’s biggest networking events and symposiums. ISOP is proud to partner with these programs to highlight the strength of Philadelphia’s insurance industry and to attract the best and brightest talent from across the country.
