Testimonials from Participants

"The LAMP program provides a much needed avenue for diverse candidates to pursue leadership skills, a mentoring relationship, and networking opportunities. The PLUS Foundation’s commitment to equity programming is on full display with this program. This is a highlight in my career."

- Aneisha Goldsmith, RPLU

"Being in LAMP has greatly benefited my career as an underwriter. I had the chance to go to the conferences and Leadership Assembly which increased my knowledge of the insurance industry, and I had opportunities to network with many influential professionals and leaders from all over the world. I have since received more recognition within my company and I have to say the program has definitely helped build my career!"

- Iris Au

"My participation and experience with LAMP has been instrumental in my practice and professional development as a professional liability insurance defense attorney. LAMP not only offers a distinct opportunity to network with industry leading professionals, but also provides an opportunity for self reflection, which will ultimately lead to a better understanding of your future professional goals. LAMP is truly an investment into your future success in the professional liability insurance industry."
