StreetWise Partners is proud to host our 3rd annual Taste of Success event in Washington DC. Taste of Success is a premiere culinary and beverage tasting event which will bring together more than 300 corporate professionals from top firms to experience the Capital District’s best food, wine and spirits. The evening will also recognize corporate volunteers—from firms such as Corporate Executive Board, The Gallup Organization, White & Case, Deloitte, Charles River Associates, The World Bank Group, Kaiser Associates, Advisory Board Company, among others—who have demonstrated outstanding leadership by helping provide low-income adults and youth transition into sustainable career through employability coaching and job-skills training. All proceeds will benefit StreetWise Partners.
StreetWise Partners’ mission is to build mentoring relationships between low-income individuals and volunteer business professionals to develop workplace skills and employment networks as the bridge to a successful career. Our vision is that one day all citizens will have the skills and opportunities to be employable and achieve economic wellbeing. We also envision a world where all corporations effectively promote volunteer service and hire, retain, and advance top talent from low-income communities; a world where all business professionals act to utilize their workplace talents to help people succeed in the workforce and become leaders of change in their communities.
