iMentor and Morgan Stanley Announce a CGI America Commitment to Expand the Mentor Pledge
Last week, iMentor CEO Mike O'Brien attended the Clinton Global Initiative America (CGI America) meeting in Chicago, along with hundreds of business, government, and nonprofit leaders from across the country. At the meeting, iMentor and Morgan Stanley announced a CGI Commitment to Action to expand the Mentor Pledge by doubling the number of Morgan Stanley employees who volunteer with iMentor.
iMentor launched the Mentor Pledge this January in partnership with 10 corporations to recruit 100 of their employees to be mentors for high school students in low-income communities throughout New York City. Morgan Stanley, one of iMentor’s longest-standing corporate supporters, will double its mentor pledge from 100 to 200 mentors as part of the company’s dedication to skills-based volunteering, which leverages the professional expertise and backgrounds of its employees to deliver high-impact results in the community.
iMentor created the Mentor Pledge with Accenture, Barclays Capital, Bloomberg LP, Citi, Deutsche Bank, Ernst & Young LLP, Goldman Sachs, Marsh & McLennan Companies, Morgan Stanley and UBS. These companies not only support iMentor with valuable volunteers but also provide a financial commitment to the Mentor Pledge program, which New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg highlighted in his 2012 State of the City address.
