Take Care, Stay Motivated: Advice from a Leader

May 26, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

With over a year into the pandemic, many of us have been navigating and adapting to new ways of working for longer than most anticipated. Our upcoming event is aimed at taking a pause to reflect on our professional experiences under lockdown while offering some advice for staying motivated, taking good care whilst managing your career development.

Women in Big Data Toronto is pleased to invite Sarah Bhanji, Chief Actuary at Northbridge for a virtual fireside chat. We’ll be asking Sarah her experiences on maintaining work/life balance, cultivating professional relationships and joining a new team in the virtual workplace. Join us at this event for the chance to ask your own questions and pick up some tips and advice from an inspiring executive leader.


As Chief Actuary at Northbridge, Sarah oversees data science and analytics, business intelligence, data governance, pricing, reserving and catastrophe exposure management.

Sarah has over 15 years of experience in the Property & Casualty insurance industry spanning pricing, reserving, underwriting, risk management and capital roles. Previously, Sarah served as Chief Actuary for Aviva Canada. Prior to this position, Sarah served in senior management and actuarial positions at Aviva and RBC Insurance and started her career as an actuarial analyst at Allstate.

Sarah has a degree in mathematics with a major in Actuarial Science from the University of Waterloo. She is a fellow of the Canadian Institute of Actuaries (CIA) and the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS).

In her spare time, Sarah enjoys staying active through exercise and getting outside, trying new wines and has been actively trying to bake the perfect baguette from scratch during lockdown.
