McCanners Giving Back: Rahel Rasu & America Needs You
Rahel Rasu, Public Relations Manager, McCann Worldgroup, spends her time in the office working with her team to manage the McCann brand out there in the world. However, not satisfied with the demands of working at the headquarters of the world’s largest advertising network, Rahel also makes time to be a mentor with America Needs You, an organization that “fights for economic mobility for ambitious, first-generation college students… by providing transformative mentorship and intensive career development.”
Rahel supports her mentee and serves as one of three co-chairs of the mentor leadership council responsible for engagement, recruitment and facilitating events for mentors. This week, Rahel brought one such event to McCann. The ANY MBA Panel event was designed to familiarize mentors with what it takes to gain admission to the most élite programs in the US, how to succeed when you get there and available scholarships for ANY mentees.
McCann hosted representatives from MBA programs at Harvard, Columbia, NYU’s Stern School, Stanford, Northwestern and the University of Chicago.
