Introducing the Second LAMP Cohort

The Professional Liability Underwriting Society (PLUS) launched the second cohort of its Diversity Leadership & Mentoring Program (LAMP) at its 30th annual conference November 1-3, 2017, in Atlanta.

LAMP is a leadership development training program for PLUS members from diverse and traditionally under-represented groups within the professional liability insurance industry. The curriculum focuses on leadership coaching but also includes matching participants with senior-level PLUS members who have agreed to serve as mentors throughout the program.

Additionally, PLUS sponsors participants’ involvement in signature PLUS events including the PLUS Conference and national Symposia as well PLUS educational offerings and RPLU designation exams.
