How Anne is building a better working world

“In my career and personal life, I have seen significant disparities in young people and underserved groups’ readiness for the working world. I’m thrilled to be focusing my career on these audiences – to become better prepared to succeed in this transformative age. As a College Map Mentor, I go into a local Boston high school to support the students' journey to university.”
