Looking to work for a company that's focused on helping protect the environment and communities?

An impressive 40 colleagues from WTW's Young Professionals Network participated in Chicago’s Adopt-a-Beach clean-up event and helped pick up 72lb of trash.

"Thanks for keeping Chicago’s beaches and the Great Lakes clean, volunteers!" said WTW

Working to protect natural waters 

Adopt-a-Beach cleanups were created by The Alliance for the Great Lakes, a nonpartisan nonprofit working across the region to protect our most precious resource: the fresh, clean, and natural waters of the Great Lakes. At Adopt-a-Beach cleanups, locally organized teams of volunteers, led by volunteer Team Leaders, clean local beaches and collect data on the litter they find. After the cleanups end, the Team Leaders enter litter data into a database, helping them form a picture of coastal litter across the entire Great Lakes region. Despite “adopt” in the name, no long-term commitment is required. 

Helping the community through action 

Ways in which Adopt-a-Beach helps the community include: 

  • Advocacy & Leadership - partnering with communities and decision makers to develop actionable solutions that protect the lakes and our communities.
  • Research & Analysis - research and analysis to inform community leaders and guide policy to protect the Great Lakes.
  • Education & Action - supporting people and communities in protecting the lakes by providing action-oriented information and programs.

Enjoy a rewarding career at WTW 

WTW employees are encouraged to give back to the community.
