Bill Rudin

Chairman of ABNY & Vice Chair and CEO of Rudin Management Company

Ladders for Leaders Partner & Employer

Last year, Rudin Management Company placed eight interns, both at their company and with a number of their nonprofit grantees. “The key thing for people to understand is that internship is not a one-way street,” Rudin explains. “We are teaching these kids and offering exposure to the world of work, whether it be at a for-profit or non-profit. But, we can also learn from them and the way they view the world. These young adults are the next generation of workforce, with computer skills, social media skills, and a life perspective that is different than ours. If employers are looking at it as purely philanthropic, they are missing an opportunity.”
