A Focus on Sustainability
“My LEO classes opened my eyes to all the ways companies can be mindful and sustainable,” says Aly Homan '17. While at SJU, she interned with Campbell Soup on The Soulful Project, an initiative that donated food to local foodbanks when consumers purchase certain products, and worked on a capstone project to help the company become B-corps certified.
Joining a Company with Strong Values
In 2017, L’Oreal was named one of the World's Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute for the eighth year in a row. “As I researched the company, I was excited to read about their ethical standards, which include making sure employees around the world benefit from the best social practices and efforts to make beauty products that work for people of all ethnicities.” She sought and was hired for an internship during the winter of her senior year, and in March accepted a full-time position beginning a week after graduation.
