#WeAreArity Wednesday: Laura Flodin
When Mom asks me what it is that I do again, I say…
At Arity, I Research what’s happening in our industry to keep our product teams and leadership up-to-date so they understand the competitive market, and where opportunities for new business may be. What industry you ask? I focus on connected car telematics space which means anything to do with driver safety or connectivity to help people be safer and smarter on the road or how they travel in general.
In your own words, what is Arity?
As the world is becoming more connected and data driven, Arity is using their expertise in data and insurance to help people be safer, and transportation more seamless.
My favorite mode of transportation is…
I like the train, it allows you to see the world or city in a new and different way.
On a Saturday afternoon, you can find me…
Running or biking on the lakefront (if it’s nice out), otherwise just hanging out with friends and exploring new places in the neighborhood.
If you could volunteer for any cause, what would it be? Why?
Out of the darkness for Suicide Prevention. I think there isn’t enough awareness for this and not a lot of it reported.
Most people don’t know I…
That I’m a published writer, at least from my college newspaper.
The theme song of my life is…
Don’t really have a theme song of my life, but My Body by Young the Giant gets me through a lot of hard runs or workouts, and maybe some hard days. Always keep fighting and moving forward.
Talk to your rideshare driver or silent ride?
Depends on the mood, normally like to chat and learn how they got involved in the business.
Would you get in a self-driving car? Why or why not?
I would at least try it out, not sure if that’s anytime soon! I’m curious about how the experience will be.
