We have talked countless times about future career opportunities for women, especially women of color, in our society:
So, we know the importance of preparing our young women involved in Polished Pebbles for their future careers. Thanks to our many corporate partners, we are able to provide our girls with exciting career exploration opportunities.
Polished Pebbles showed our girls that there is a necessary place for women in technology fields! Thank you Blue1647 for hosting the event!
Hyatt gave our girls a sneak peak into the hospitality field. They learned the importance of customer service and organizing a team.
Blue Cross Blue Shield Illinois is a wonderful corporate partner for Polished Pebbles and gave our girls an education job shadowing experience.
Of course our girls got a behind the scenes look in the fashion industry with Bloomingdale’s!
Another corporate partner, Nordstrom, shows our girls all aspects of the department store and fashion industries.
