After getting my MBA from Darden School of Business, I returned to New York City passionate about becoming more involved with organizations committed to having a positive impact on society. I also wanted to re-create an incredible aspect of my Darden experience – being surrounded by empowered women focused on professional development and creating change in their communities.
I found this through Clara’s Council, a group within the American Red Cross focused on professional mentorship and networking between women, philanthropy, volunteer work and event support. After attending my first event, I was taken aback by the network of women that were part of this incredible organization. I was able to connect with female leaders across multiple industries while supporting the American Red Cross mission. I have been fortunate enough to continue my involvement by supporting and participating in local events. My involvement with Clara’s Council has empowered me through my relationship with a professional mentor, as well as contributing to an organization that has such a positive and philanthropic impact.
My role within CRG has perfectly complemented this outside community. I have found during my time at CRG that there is a strong emphasis on mentorship and driving impact.
My role within CRG has perfectly complemented this outside community. I have found during my time at CRG that there is a strong emphasis on mentorship and driving impact. CRG’s leaders are committed to development and advancement of their team, and the wider CRG community is passionate about empowering all employees. Also, CRG is dedicated to delivering positive impact with our clients, which I witnessed from the first week of my internship and continue to see and drive in my role as a manager. I am lucky to be part of two communities that are both aligned in these important values.
