In this episode, Yvonne and Rafael chat with Jennifer Wolf of International Association of Industrial Accident Boards & Commissions (IAIABC) founded 107 years ago. Jenn is the executive director of IAIABC. She is an absolute gem of a person and a delight to engage with in conversation. Our industry is so lucky to have her...she is smart, she has a wonderful sense of humor and she is so knowledgeable about workers' compensation and the industry at large.
Listen in as we chat about how she arrived in the industry, her memorable first day on the job, her podcast, Accidentally, and her thoughts about the important role of workers' compensation in society.
Jenn shares about what is the IAIABC and how they believe that bringing together people from all states and countries, to discuss, explore and debate the issues that exists in the workers' compensation system helps to improve and shape the system for the future.
She talks about the fragile balance between the two competing tensions in the system, that of the employer and employee, and why ensuring that both voices are well-represented in the system are essential.
We invite you to listen and learn from Jenn as she openly shares what she has learned and some of the obstacles she has overcome in her career.
BONUS: at the end we have a fun round-robin review of some workers' compensation acronyms!
