"Like Luke, all of us at G&S are passionate about investing in future generations of talent and enhancing the representation of people of color and other historically marginalized communities within our agency and across the industry at large," said Anne Green, G&S Business Communications CEO. “Our panel of judges who generously volunteered their time to review entries were so impressed with each applicant’s academic achievement, contributions to their communities and commitment to pursuing an integrated marketing communications career. We applaud all those who applied and celebrate Jordan on this well-deserved recognition!  We are looking forward to welcoming her to the G&S team as an intern this summer.”

Being an intern at G&S encourages me to promote change in my community and will equip me with the opportunities to engage in community outreach. I hope to learn hard skills in marketing and communication, while building meaningful connections around me.”
