In memory of Donna Walker

Donna was a much loved and respected member of the Insurance Community. She was appointed to the ANZIIF Board in March 2017 and was highly regarded across the industry, having developed a wealth of knowledge during her expansive career.

Donna championed and supported diversity within the insurance industry and was an early supporter of flexible working programs including her participation in diversity and inclusion groups at both IAG and Allianz. Donna was an admired professional and respected leader, who displayed warmth, genuine care and dedication in her professional and personal life. She was a regular speaker at industry events, and was a friend of ANZIIF for many years.
