At our Annual Partnership Breakfast this morning, we unveiled the thrilling news of a one-million-dollar investment in StreetWise Partners by Global Atlantic Financial Group, a long-time partner and leading insurance company meeting the retirement and life insurance needs of individuals and institutions. This incredible investment will advance the StreetWise mission in connecting graduates to jobs faster, at higher starting salaries. Beyond dollars, Global Atlantic will increase their efforts to volunteer with StreetWise and focus on qualified graduates for potential employment opportunities at the company.
Shari Krull, CEO of StreetWise Partners, said, “We are driven to equip underrepresented talent with the skills, industry knowledge and social capital needed to launch their careers and achieve upward mobility. Global Atlantic Financial Group’s generous investment bolsters our efforts and underlines their confidence in our cause.”
“At Global Atlantic, we devote a substantial number of resources to attract, retain and develop exceptional talent. The talent coming out of StreetWise is impressive and their enthusiasm for learning is unparalleled,” said Dan O’Shea, Chief Administrative Officer at Global Atlantic. “The social impact that StreetWise is having is tremendous, and so we are doubling down on our commitment.”
We also debuted a video at the Partnership Breakfast this morning, highlighting our deep, holistic partnership with Global Atlantic. We showcased program graduates like Vanessa Loo, who is now an Investment Accounting Analyst at Global Atlantic who says, “Before coming to StreetWise I was in a job I wasn’t happy with. StreetWise helped me to a better path by learning the skills we need in order to improve in the job search. Because of them, a lot of things have changed. I really enjoy being here at Global Atlantic and I really love their culture and values.”
