LiNC, short for Latinos in Insurance Networking for our Community, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2013 by Ana Barbosa. Our mission is to bridge the gap between talented yet underprivileged youth and the diverse business community, fostering a positive networking environment for members to thrive and pay it forward.
Originally conceived as a vision to assist at-risk students through mentorship and paid internships in the insurance industry, LiNC has since evolved into a well-established nonprofit. Since 2014, we have successfully placed dozens of interns in nationally recognized insurance firms, and our signature events, including LiNC Talks, have garnered over 200 attendees.
Committed to community engagement and inspiration, we tackle current issues and strive to build a future for our students, promoting their socioeconomic and scholastic potential. As a grassroots organization, LiNC is dedicated to enhancing the well-being of the community in Los Angeles and beyond.
