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.
