Keynote Speaker on Resilience
Dr. Paul G. Stoltz is considered the world’s leading authority on the integration and application of GRIT and resilience. He is the founder and CEO of PEAK Learning, Inc., a global research and consulting firm, through which he coaches, consults, teaches, and collaborates with top leaders, thinkers, and influencers within a broad range of organizations from start-ups and non-governmental organizations to the Fortune 500 on six continents. Today, GRIT and the Adversity Quotient (AQ) are the most widely adopted methods of their kind in the world for measurably enhancing one’s resilience and agility.
This panel brings together innovators and educators to discuss innovation and disruption. Join us for this inspiring discussion, moderated by Kelly Hennigan, FSA, CFA, from the SOA Professional Development Committee. The panel features Ellen Ayoob from Carnegie Mellon University’s Integrated Innovation Institute, who works with human-centered research and design innovation; marketing and consumer behavior expert Peggy Liu from the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Business; and design activist / ethnographer Uday Dandavate from Carnegie Mellon’s Integrated Innovation Institute and design research company SonicRim.
Climate Risk Symposium
Join us on November 2 for the half-day “Climate Risk Symposium – The Evolving Role of the Actuary in Climate Risk” virtual event, which is included with your ImpACT Conference registration. The symposium highlights the work of the SOA Research Institute’s Catastrophe & Climate Strategic Research Program. Six back-to-back sessions offer perspectives on topics from regulatory disclosure and projected changes to actuarial tools and assumptions, and what practicing climate actuaries are doing in their work today. You will receive attendance reminders in advance of this bonus event!

Shape the Future
The 2021 ImpACT Conference theme is “Shape the Future.” Come together to focus on innovation and the opportunities ahead for our profession as the world recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic and works to build a new future. Key volunteers, members and SOA staff, identified the overall idea to drive discussion and meeting content for this event as Demonstrating Relevancy in an Evolving World. It’s a broad, bold future-oriented statement and one we believe should be discussed and debated among members and our related industries.
Four topics were identified to drive the meeting content:
- Spearheading innovation through change
- Safeguarding populations
- Cultivating future opportunities
- Protecting long-term economic progress
Look forward to exciting and interesting sessions and discussions with these driving topics in mind as we embrace change and lead risk management to protect long-term economic progress and safeguard our populations.
