Employer Spotlight - 
The Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers


The Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers (CIAB) is a member-based trade association for the world's top commercial insurance and employee benefits brokerages. With a mission to promote their members' business growth and drive the industry forward, CIAB prides themselves on being a community of forward-thinkers, leaders, and risk-takers who foster industry-wide relationships around the globe by engaging lawmakers, regulators and stakeholders to promote the interests of its members and the valuable role they play in the mitigation of risk for their clients. 

The Council joined as an employer partner in the winter of 2020, hosting two BroadFutures interns. We are excited to continue our partnership in the future. 

Julia Ruiz, Vice President of Leadership & Management Resources, reflected on CIAB's experience during our Winter 2020 Program: "Hosting two BroadFutures interns this winter was such a rewarding experience for our office. Even with the sudden switch to working from home, the interns we hosted were motivated to work and continued to provide fresh new perspectives to the work we do. The BroadFutures team provided fantastic support not only to the interns, but to our staff as well."

Thank you, Julia, for those kind words! We are so happy that even in the switch to working remotely, we were able to successfully see the internships through to the end. We look forward to continuing to work together in the future. You can learn more about CIAB here.
Summer Participant Snapshots - Amonte Gwaltney

Meet Amonte Gwaltney for this month's participant spotlight! An 18-year-old from Washington, DC, Amonte recently graduated from Kipp DC College Prep this spring. Directly following graduation, he joined us for our first-ever virtual summer program. We thoroughly enjoyed having Amonte participate in the Summer Strengths Program. He proved to be a very engaged, motivated, and empathetic participant, contributing greatly to our summer cohort. 

Amonte enjoyed how the program utilized multiple ways to deliver the curriculum. He appreciated the interactive component of the program, from breakout sessions to playing games to partnered discussions, which really helped solidify the curriculum for him.

Since completing the BroadFutures program, Amonte is now enrolled at Prince George's Community College and hopes to pursue a career in special education. 

Amonte, we wish you the best of luck in your academic pursuits! We know you will thrive in whatever path you choose to explore.
