OMD is a community of educators, entrepreneurs, and big thinkers who believe in the transformative power of a single community college degree.
Every day, OMD propels scholars beyond educational, financial, and environmental barriers by providing critical resources so that scholars can launch promising careers. Companies that partner with OMD are not only supporting an innovative model that works, but fueling our growth so we can reach more students than ever before.
“OMD Scholars are resilient, motivated, and determined to succeed. They’re the next pipeline for workforce talent,” says Jessica Chu, Second Vice President of Hedge Fund Investor Relations, Northern Trust Bank, and current OMD Coach.
Today, a company’s success is intertwined with its commitment to the community. When you support OMD, you’re empowering tomorrow’s leaders, both at OMD and within your own company. When you become an OMD sponsor, you foster a leadership culture within your own company and the business community, invest in your employees and the student scholars, and support the community where you live and work.
Together, we can build tomorrow’s leaders, one scholar at a time.
How can you get involved?
OMD Partners sponsor scholars, OMD programming, and career exploration events. They provide coaches, volunteers, and board leadership. They hire scholars for internships and alumni for full-time positions.
