The newly launched partnership will engage Northwestern Mutual employees as mentors to adult job seekers from overlooked communities
StreetWise Partners is thrilled to announce a new partnership with Northwestern Mutual, a leading financial services company.
The partnership is championed by Northwestern Mutuals’ Generations Employee Resource Group. The mission of the Generations ERG at Northwestern Mutual is to promote a diverse and inclusive workplace where employees of all ages can be fully engaged with a focus on working together in career development, community enrichment, cultural awareness, and driving business success.
“Mentoring with StreetWise has impacted me personally in a positive way, as well as my mentees, and has inspired me to spread the word to my colleagues to get Northwestern Mutual involved in such a great organization,” said Justine Ubaldini, Senior Product Manager at Northwestern Mutual. “StreetWise is special because you can directly see the impact of your volunteerism through growth in the mentees. It is amazing to see the large impact small changes can have on both mentee and mentor lives through this program.”
As part of the new partnership, Northwestern Mutual employees will have the opportunity to serve as mentors to the ambitious job seekers looking for training from StreetWise Partners. They will participate in various one-time events like Speed Networking and Mock Interviews, while also offering advice from their own career journeys.
“We’re thankful to Justine for all of the time she has already dedicated to mentoring our job seekers and for taking the extra step to introduce us to her colleagues. And we’re particularly thankful to Northwestern Mutual for supporting this partnership,” said Nicole Carrea, Chief Partnerships Officer at StreetWise Partners. “This is just the beginning of tremendous collaboration and we’re excited to welcome more Northwestern Mutual employees to the StreetWise community.”
