Beth began her public speaking career as a thought leader and innovator in the health insurance industry. Over the years, Beth drew upon her personal experiences as both a woman ascending the corporate ladder and one of the few female leaders in executive management. She began speaking with groups on topics such as Women in Leadership and Executive Management, Resilience, Work/Life Integration and other health and wellness topics.
Beth believes that a good leader helps others grow. As a result, she has been a champion for women serving as a mentor, sponsor and advocate in the workplace. At Humana, Beth served as the first Executive Sponsor for both the company’s Women’s and Hispanic Network Resource Groups. As a result of her deep commitment to helping others develop professionally, Beth peers honored her with the Trailblazer Award. In addition, The Beth Bierbower Legacy Award was developed to honor Beth’s service and commitment to the development of women at Humana.
Beth’s commitment to serving others continues through her participation on various healthcare Boards including the American Telemedicine Association and BlueSprig, an organization that provided ABA therapy to Children. In addition, Beth serves as an advisor to many startups.
