The LaTanya Simmons Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Award

The Private Risk Management Association (PRMA) LaTanya Simmons Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Award was first introduced in 2022. This award aligns with DEI Team Co-Chair and PRMA Board Member, LaTanya Simmons vision of the industry when she began the conversation in 2020:

“I strongly believe in the risk management industry’s ability to affect positive change in ALL people’s lives and our hope is that through the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Team’s work that we would emerge with a sense of actionable purpose to be better, stronger and most importantly to stand together.”


This award recognizes a diversity, equity & inclusion initiative introduced within the last eighteen months by any organization operating in the high-net-worth insurance and risk management segment.

The organization who is this recipient of this award will be recognized at the 2024 PRMA Annual Summit being held October 28th – 30th in Arlington, TX.
