What do you give the man who has everything?

Some time to one of his favorite charities!

This is Shea Feeney and Christina Souto from the U.C. Davis Graduate School of Management! We are excited to be part of a group of 20 students who have decided to give some of our time volunteering with Girl’s Inc. of Omaha during our trip to Nebraska. We have been coming back annually for the last several years because we strongly believe in the Girls Inc mission to inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold through their innovative programs to harness potential. What brings us to Omaha is the Oracle himself – Warren Buffett! And to stay true to Mr. Buffett’s philosophy of giving back, we make it a priority to volunteer with a charity he is passionate about while traveling to Nebraska for a lunch and Q & A session with the business legend.

Personally, we share a passion for girls in STEM as our backgrounds before business school were in those fields. It is an honor to support an organization engaging a diverse group of girls into a field where they are still widely underrepresented. We love to see not only how they have promoted STEM, but a whole lifestyle of well-being and are engaging their girls to become prepared for a rewarding adulthood.
Today we took a tour of the North Omaha Girl’s Inc facility, learned about their great programs, and heard that they received best affiliate of 2017 [Congratulations!!]. We are helping out with some cleaning activities to ensure the organization starts 2018 with a smooth start!

We have been so impressed with the Girls Inc at Omaha that we have been inspired to start a partnership with the chapter in the Bay Area back in California. It is an organization well deserving of volunteer time and we encourage others to seek out their local chapter to do the same! A big thanks to Girl’s Inc. of Omaha, and Ms. Sydney, for hosting us today.
