One of our core values is the Growth Mindset: Grow as individuals and as a team by continuously elevating skills and habits to be elite professionals. This focus is also extended to the communities in which we operate through a focus on community partnerships and scholarship.
Julie Thomas, President and CEO, is an esteemed member of the eWomenNetwork Foundation Advisory Council. The eWomenNetwork Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and in-kind services in support of health, safety, and wellness initiatives, educational scholarships, and entrepreneurial mentorships for women and children.
ValueSelling Associates partners with Connect-US, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Bridgeport, CT. Connect-US brings together suburban and urban neighbors to improve the quality of outcomes for young people living in communities of concentrated poverty. Julie Thomas will be leading webinars for high schoolers and making eValueSelling Fundamentals eLearning available to them.
In addition to our ongoing programs, we create the space for our employees to find meaningful ways to impact their own communities — providing employees with an additional day of PTO to dedicate to the volunteer program of their choice.
Since 2005, we have supported the next generation of sales professionals through the ValueSelling Associates Endowed Scholarship Fund at the University of Colorado, Leeds School of Business. In 2020, we added a second scholarship for students from historically underrepresented groups who are interested in pursuing a career in sales.
