Employees of Aegis Media made a strong showing at this year’s Mentor for Morning event. These media executives made an impact by meeting a goal set by Aegis’ Volunteer Challenge. The Volunteer Challenge is an employee led regional initiative that supports Aegis’ global corporate responsibility goals by enabling employees to give back by volunteering their time and expertise to their surrounding communities.
Championed by Baruch Alumni Leslie Grand, a recurring EOC mentor, and Trisha Clarke, eleven Aegis staffers turned out for the event. The group consisted of professionals from human resources, consumer strategy, media planning, research as well as finance led by the CFO.
Mentors were very impressed with the execution of the event as well as with the students. John Wolff, a senior digital strategist said “the people I met were interesting and interested and they made me feel that my time was well invested.”
Aegis is no stranger to the Baruch Community. Not only does the agency employ several alumni, but it has also offered interning opportunities to undergraduate students.
As Aegis Media looks to continually strengthen their involvement in their community, the company looks forward to making Mentor for a Morning a recurring event on their CSR calendar.
