NERA Economic Consulting’s Global Mentoring Event

14 June 2021

New York—NERA Economic Consulting supports mentoring efforts that teach, mentor, empower, and inspire young people in the areas of economics, mathematics, business, and financial literacy and education. Colleagues primarily mentor at-risk youths and those who don’t traditionally have access to career information, infrastructure, and support due to obstacles stemming from racial discrimination, immigration status, and poverty in their local communities. NERA supports and encourages its employees to volunteer with local organizations, to share experiences, and to use their gifts and talents to further the non-profit organizations working in this area.

On 19 May 2021, colleagues from across the US joined mentees from Streetwise Partners who are unemployed or underemployed in the Washington, DC, metro area to polish their elevator pitches and gain networking experience in a virtual speed networking event. NERA colleagues specializing in research analysis, antitrust, health care, marketing, statistical analysis, and securities acted as sounding boards and gave feedback to strengthen mentees’ pitches and grow their professional skills.

Streetwise Partners provides mentees from overlooked and under-resourced communities in New York, Detroit, and Washington, DC, the skills, resources, and access to networks they need to secure and maintain employment.

We appreciate the work that Streetwise Partners does day in and day out to help those who are seeking advice and guidance as they start their careers and pursue their dreams. All of us at NERA were helped by a mentor in some way, and this is one way in which we try to pay it forward.
