Wiser Strategies shares its talents and energy for the benefit of the community.
Hands-on experience is invaluable to budding professionals, so we help students apply their education to real-world settings through internships. We typically sponsor one or more internships each year and provide mentoring and presentations as our schedules permit.
For consideration as an intern, complete an application at least two months before the semester begins and early birds are more likely to get the worm.
Our team members are leaders, serving on boards and committees of organizations that serve a purpose dear to their hearts. Ask us about our pet projects.
Each year we select a community enhancement project to undertake at no fee. For instance, in recent years we helped the Kentucky Aviation Museum with social media support and the Bluegrass Community and Technical College with market research about a potential new program.
If you have a project you would like Wiser Strategies to consider for the upcoming year, please submit a proposal letter by mail no later than October 31. Address it to “Corporate Social Responsibility” at our address.
Wiser Strategies embraces diversity – among team members, suppliers, customers and the communities in which we conduct business. We believe it’s the right way to live and do business.
We seek to form partnerships with minority- and other women-owned businesses as part of our ongoing search for top talent. Our supplier diversity program includes actively pursuing and developing relationships with qualified small and diverse businesses by being engaged in organizations that open doors to people of diverse backgrounds and participating in local and regional diversity programs. It also includes mentoring others to help build the talent pool.
We believe it’s important to be involved in organizations that provide leadership and advocacy for business because it is good for the economy, which is good for communities. We have memberships with Greater Louisville Inc, Commerce Lexington, and Jessamine Chamber of Commerce.
