WASHINGTON (PRWEB) March 08, 2021
The National Structured Settlements Trade Association (NSSTA) announces the formation of the NSSTA Women’s Caucus, the first such organization in the structured settlements industry. In a traditionally male-led industry, women have been steadily growing in numbers, and now 17 percent of NSSTA’s membership is comprised of women. “We are excited to support the growth of women in the structured settlements industry officially with the establishment of the NSSTA Women’s Caucus. By providing a forum to address the unique issues faced by women in our business through education, mentorship and community, we all benefit,” said Eric Vaughn, Executive Director at NSSTA.
NSSTA members, Paula Rubinstein, Settlement Consultant at NFP Structured Settlements, Christine Logan, President & CEO at Logan & Associates, and Erin Muller Eddy, Settlement Consultant at Ringler Associates created the Women’s Caucus. Membership has already doubled since January. The Women’s Caucus aims to elevate women in the structured settlement industry through mentorship, professional development and networking. “When women are empowered, they go on to empower others. They improve the lives of everyone around them,” said Paula Rubinstein, Women’s Caucus Chairwoman adding, “We are committed to providing a strong support system for women as they grow and develop in their careers.”
One of the goals for the Women’s Caucus is to gain greater representation on the NSSTA Board of Directors’ level and to rally more women to lead the initiatives of the organization toward educating the public about the tax free financial security afforded people with structured settlements after an unforeseen tragedy in their lives. With the theme of Choose to Challenge (#ChoosetoChallenge) on heard around the world on International Women’s Day, the NSSTA Women’s Caucus and the entire NSSTA organization embraces the day’s mantra that from challenge comes change.
