The family of Pamela Luise Picard with American Chamber of Commerce Estonia (AmCham
Estonia), in partnership with Latitude59, has issued a call for nominations for the first ever
edition of the Pamela Luise Prize for Dream Lifters

A joint initiative of the family and AmCham Estonia, the Prize pays tribute to the story of Pamela, an extraordinary American Human Resources pioneer, Ally, and advocate for dreamers, with family connections to Estonia through her son, longtime AmCham Board Member, and Vice President, Carl Pucci.
