    Leaving the reflection question, whilst going though number of articles and googling further, I ran into an article from 2019 on safety measures in cars and how they better protect men than women.

    Would never have assumed inequality on this topic....... One learns!

    Keeping up the pace with goals set. Whilst reading material, I ran into the 17 UN goals. These are the ones that my kids educated me on a few years ago. Good to get reminded of them and acknowledging all of them need attention.

    Joined again this year making sure keeping the awareness up plus bringing these into execution. Last year took up some challenges which turned into a daily behavior since then, now up for the next level. Key item for this time's participation is to broaden it to the work environment and start discussing the don'ts going forward as an insurance industry as a whole (beginning with the niche of Credit & Surety (re)insurance).
