Press Release: District Wharf Partnership
BroadFutures Interns with their supervisors at Entertainment Cruises on the Wharf
This summer, we formed a partnership with the new development project in Southwest D.C., The District Wharf. We partnered with six new employers: InterContinental Washington D.C., Concord Hospitality, Colonial Parking, Entertainment Cruises, the Southwest Business Improvement District (SWBID), and CBRE. These new opportunities provided our interns with a variety of internships in industries new to BroadFutures, such as those of hospitality and entertainment.
We are so thankful for such a successful partnership, and we look forward to our continued and inspired collaboration!
Since the inception of BroadFutures, Fusion Marketing has been instrumental in helping to create and promote our brand. For the past 5 years, Fusion has assisted BroadFutures with its marketing needs with passion, creativity and generosity. Starting with the creation of our logo and continuing with our website, marketing materials and Gala invitations, they have donated hundreds of hours of professional services to our mission.
Founded in 2001 in Princeton, New Jersey by Maeve Egner, Fusion Marketing’s unique approach of fusing purpose and passion into all the work they do has led to many successful partnerships and happy clients in medical device and consumer good industries. We are incredibly thankful to Fusion Marketing for helping the BroadFutures brand come alive and for their lasting commitment to our mission and vision of an inclusive workforce. Maeve Egner, owner of Fusion Marketing, had this to say of our partnership:
“All of us at Fusion have a special spot in our hearts for BroadFutures. We believe strongly in helping support our young people as they go forth and define their futures. We have seen this outstanding organization grow from their very first program to celebrating five years of successfully touching so many lives. It is our privilege to be their marketing partner.”
This month we are shining the spotlight on Matthew Griff, a BroadFutures Summer 2018 intern. After graduating from the University of Maryland Baltimore County with a B.S. in Mathematics, Matthew was excited to join BroadFutures to gain more experience in his field. He interned with The American Psychological Association (APA) in the Finance Department, where he gained critical workplace experience and was provided a supportive environment to expand upon his professional communication skills. Matthew was excited to have the opportunity to use his skills in mathematics to help contribute to the organization. Matthew’s dedication and industrious nature proved a great asset in his internship. After completing the BroadFutures program, Matthew began a Master’s degree program in Data Science at UMBC. When reflecting on his internship experience, Matthew reported that “BroadFutures helped me regain my confidence.“
We cannot ask for any greater praise. Thank you, Matthew, and we wish you the best of luck in graduate school!!
