Introducing Our Anniversary
Jamelia Morgan and CIAB
Jamelia Morgan, Esq., is an award-winning scholar whose teachings analyze the intersections of race, gender, disability, and criminal law. Morgan's scholarship specifically interrogates Disability Law and the criminalization of physical and social disorders in the United States legal system. She currently acts as Professor of Law and Faculty Director at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law where she also leads the Center for Racial and Disability Justice as its founder.
In June, our BroadFutures staff was lucky enough to engage in a transformative disability and racial justice training held by Jamelia Morgan and her colleague, Jordyn Jensen. We are thrilled to recognize Morgan's contributions and look forward to honoring her at our 10 Year Anniversary Celebration.
The Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers (CIAB) has been a proud supporter of BroadFutures. They have hosted 7 interns since 2019 to support our mission of advancing workplace equity. We are excited to honor CIAB's contributions to diversity and disability inclusion at our Anniversary Celebration on October 21.
CIAB was founded in 1913 with a mission to provide a forum where commercial insurance agents, brokers, and companies can collaborate, share ideas, and learn from one another. Today, CIAB is globally recognized as one of the frontier advocates for insurance brokers on employee benefits. Learn more about CIAB here.

Intern Spotlight - Amber Ward
This month we are shining the spotlight on Amber Ward! Amber is a Washington, DC native who currently attends North Carolina Central University where she is majoring in Psychology.
This summer, Amber interned at CBRE where she was most excited about "networking and growing [her] professional and communication skills". When asked to reflect on the highlights of BroadFutures programming, Amber shared, "My favorite part has been the interactive activities we do such as Game Genius, yoga, and games with [theater instructor] Raymond Caldwell".
Amber is a hardworking and conscientious young person who brought valuable perspectives to her peers and colleagues this summer. Though the Summer 2023 Program ended, we are happy to have her as part of our BroadFutures alumni community. Join us at the Anniversary Celebration to hear Amber share more about her experience!
