Bob Sansone is a 30 year insurance professional who currently works for Lexington Ins. His experience includes working as a Producer, Branch Manager, Business Analyst, Underwriter, Statistical Records Rating Supervisor & Underwriting Manager.
After sharing a life changing experience with his two daughters in 2005, he became a leader and champion of diversity and inclusion. While vacationing at the Ft. Lauderdale Sheraton in June 2005 Bob and his family found themselves poolside as the only white family in the middle of a wonderful African American family reunion. Approximately 75 people were present. It was the first time his children experienced what it was like to be a minority. Their initial discomfort was put at ease after he explained how God created everyone equally and that the color of a person’s skin or their religion did not matter. The events of that day had such a profound impact on him that he twice filed legislation on the importance of race relations, diversity and tolerance and began a lifelong crusade in diversity and inclusion.
He is also the Founder of Sneakers to Beakers – an afterschool program whose mission is to inspire children, especially those from underrepresented groups,
to become more engaged in Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) through a multicultural Sports based curriculum. S2B expects to pilot their program in Boston and neighboring cities during the upcoming school year. (www.sneakerstobeakers.org)
