Nationwide Attends the 2013 National Urban League Conference
Nationwide Joins the National Urban League to Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom
Columbus, Ohio - For the fourth consecutive year, Nationwide returns to the National Urban League’s Annual conference taking place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This year’s conference celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the historic “March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.” Conference attendance is comprised of business community leaders, policy makers and news makers who are asked to answer the call to action, “Redeem the Dream.”
Nationwide’s Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer, Gale King serves as a board member of the National Urban League working with other community and business leaders from various industries to lend guidance and support for the important strategic initiatives of the organization.
“Nationwide is more than a business, we believe in supporting our members and the communities where they live and work,” said Gale King, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer. “We are proud to partner with the National Urban League, more than a century old organization that has served as the cornerstone of so many neighborhoods across the country, because we have a shared vision to serve the noble purpose of engaging and empowering communities.”
Nationwide sponsors the organization’s web site www.iamempowered.com that serves as a single platform to house important news and information about the National Urban League’s 2025 Empowerment Goals focused on jobs, health, housing and education. Nationwide provides free financial tools on the site for retirement planning, small business insurance plans and family financial planning. The online resource sparks meaningful dialogue between community members, business leaders and policy makers that can be translated into actionable plans to improve the well-being of their respective communities.
At the conference, Nationwide agents will be available at the Expo Fair in the Philadelphia Convention Center to answer questions about products and services for customers and prospective customers. Additionally, a staff of recruiters will be on hand at the conference career fair to talk to job seekers about various employment opportunities in the Nationwide agent force and in our offices across the country.
