The ASA Leadership Hall of Fame was created in 1985 to recognize outstanding individual contributions made through dedicated service to ASA and the staffing and recruiting industry.

For 40 years, Taylor has played a key role in the development and implementation of what has become one of the most comprehensive programs of insurance for the staffing industry. She has witnessed firsthand the changes and growth the industry has undergone and has made sure, through her career, that World Wide’s coverage met the evolving exposures that the industry faced.

An ardent supporter of ASA for decades, Taylor oversaw World Wide Specialty Programs as it became the association’s first corporate partner in 2009. In 2016, she was named one of the top 50 extraordinary women in the insurance industry by Insurance Business America.

“Dorothy Taylor’s commitment, passion, and dedication to advancing the interests of ASA and the industry are unparalleled,” says Richard Wahlquist, president and CEO of ASA. “We are all indebted to Dorothy for her lifetime of service, unwavering support, and leadership.”
