Amy presented just the right mix of instruction and interactivity to be sure that audience members understood the importance of a diverse workforce and had identified weaknesses our own networks. The assessment tool she introduced in the "Our Brains Are Biased: How to Break Out, Break In, and Break Through" webinar showed me the weaknesses in my own professional network (without making me feel exposed) and highlighted areas for improvement. She created an atmosphere of safety during the session which allowed us to ask potentially-sensitive questions knowing that her response would be professional and kind. This is an especially important session for new professionals to help them build their networks with intention and for those with well-established networks who may not yet realize the bias that they may be unconsciously supporting.

Your work is unique. Beyond stating the theories regarding “isms,” you’re doing something about the diversity problem in business. I’ve read your words. I’ve heard your public voice. I’m excited. Keep pushing. It’s what the world needs.

Today, I want to take the time to thank my mentor, Amy Waninger... Amy, your dedication and time to me has really paid off. I can honestly tell you that you helped me maneuver the corporate landscape by pulling my military skills that I learned as a sergeant in the military and applying them in corporate America, which is a totally different beast. You’ve also taught me how to be a versatile leader and how to advocate for my voice in the workplace, which can be challenging as a woman professional. You also taught me how to speak in public, which was not a problem [for me] in the Army, but I think it became a problem when I took that uniform off and my confidence level dropped a little bit… The materials that you sent me and your check on my learning really helped me out. So, Amy, from the bottom of my heart, thank you… I hope you know that I think of you as an incredible professional and personal friend…

Amy was phenomenal! Her program resonated with our attendees and she knocked it out of the park. We loved that she participated in the conference as well before and after her speech. Not a lot of keynote speakers do that.

Amy presented "Moving from Panic to Purpose" for our chapter meeting. She was very knowledgeable and easy to listen to. She was able to answer all questions and was very professional. Her slides were easy to read, and she gave great examples. She did a fantastic job!

Hi Amy,
I just finished watching and listening to the recording of a CPCU Society webinar that I originally missed. I almost did not go back to it because I have been so busy, but I am so glad that I did!

You did an excellent job presenting this topic. I believe that many people are turned off by topics about diversity and inclusion. They somehow feel offended or uncomfortable by them. I have seen, heard and participated in many diversity presentations over the past 15 years and this was honestly one of the best. It was a very interesting way to try to approach the topic. Not only did you do a great job conveying the information, but you were also quite inspiring and an excellent speaker.

All the best to you, Amy, with your company and your career.

Amy C. Waninger's "Lead at any Level" presentation on bias was a refreshing and useful presentation that offered many tools I will now use to expand the diversity and impact of my network.

As a career advisor who works largely with a non-traditional student population, it can be a challenge to express the value and importance of actively networking within our technology age.

This presentation offered tools like the CHAMP/IGGNORE model and language that I will rely upon to express that value to my clients, and help them as they grow professionally and personally.

I participated in one of Amy's Unconscious Bias Webinars and learned a ton. She has a great way to bring down the concepts to make them easy to understand and fun so you're bound to remember them.

I recently became acquainted with Lead at Any Level and had the pleasure of meeting Amy Waninger. While her leadership for D&I initiatives already intrigued me, her passion for getting out her message, making a difference and her dedication to the work was impressive. I'm excited to have connected with her and I'm sure we'll all be hearing more and more about her work in the years to come.

You have encouraged me to examine my strengths and limitations and to actively pursue opportunities that are truly the right fit for me, not just the most lucrative.

You have been a champion for me and helping me get my contributions noticed and seen. You have helped me feel comfortable reaching for things I may have been afraid or unsure of doing. You have encouraged me to think about situations from different perspectives, and sometimes you ask me questions I don't want to answer, because then I'm accountable for what I do with what I learn about myself.

Amy presented just the right mix of instruction and interactivity to be sure that audience members understood the importance of a diverse workforce and had identified weaknesses our own networks. The assessment tool she introduced in the "Our Brains Are Biased: How to Break Out, Break In, and Break Through" webinar showed me the weaknesses in my own professional network (without making me feel exposed) and highlighted areas for improvement. She created an atmosphere of safety during the session which allowed us to ask potentially-sensitive questions knowing that her response would be professional and kind. This is an especially important session for new professionals to help them build their networks with intention and for those with well-established networks who may not yet realize the bias that they may be unconsciously supporting.

Amazing talk. [Break Out of Bias] was exactly what I needed to hear today. You inspire me. You're knowledgeable and also vulnerable in sharing your humanity. You show a way to move toward change. Wow, and thank you!
Amy presented "Moving from Panic to Purpose" for our chapter meeting. She was very knowledgeable and easy to listen to. She was able to answer all questions and was very professional. Her slides were easy to read, and she gave great examples. She did a fantastic job!

Today, I want to take the time to thank my mentor, Amy Waninger... Amy, your dedication and time to me has really paid off. I can honestly tell you that you helped me maneuver the corporate landscape by pulling my military skills that I learned as a sergeant in the military and applying them in corporate America, which is a totally different beast. You’ve also taught me how to be a versatile leader and how to advocate for my voice in the workplace, which can be challenging as a woman professional. You also taught me how to speak in public, which was not a problem [for me] in the Army, but I think it became a problem when I took that uniform off and my confidence level dropped a little bit… The materials that you sent me and your check on my learning really helped me out. So, Amy, from the bottom of my heart, thank you… I hope you know that I think of you as an incredible professional and personal friend…

You taught me if I am going to do something I can't do it half way. Really push the limits. This has beneficial in so many ways in my personal and professional life.

You are the most influential professional role model that has shaped how I operate as a manager. I want my team to have the experience working for me that I had working for you.
