The Student Conservation Association (SCA), the national leader in youth service and stewardship, will present its Corporate Trailblazer Award to West Monroe Partners on Thursday, June 21st, in Seattle, Washington. The award recognizes businesses that demonstrate leadership, altruism, and innovation in “blazing new trails” to support SCA’s mission of transforming young lives through conservation service.
West Monroe Partners, a national business and technology consultancy, is a long-time SCA partner. Company executives have served on SCA’s board over the past decade, and West Monroe’s professional services have enabled SCA to substantially upgrade its internal systems and strengthen its youth capacity building initiatives. SCA and West Monroe employees regularly volunteer to enhance local parks and communities throughout the U.S., including earlier this month at the University District P-Patch Community Garden. The firm also has provided SCA with generous financial support for many years.
“West Monroe is honored to receive this award from SCA,” says Tom Bolger, West Monroe’s West Coast senior managing director and current SCA board member, in accepting the Trailblazer Award. “Our firm’s mission is to develop the next generation of leaders, and thus we feel strongly aligned with SCA’s work to develop leadership skills through hands-on conversation service. We feel privileged to support the organization so they can serve even more young leaders and protect our precious park lands.”
