Class of 2019
In summer of 2018, Shivani was the corporate social responsibility (CSR) summer analyst at the New York City headquarters of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, or MUFG. MUFG is the world’s fifth largest bank by total assets and is one of the main companies of the Mitsubishi Group. She evaluated non-profit submissions for MUFG Union Bank Foundation support, identified volunteering opportunities, recommended ways to improve employee engagement, determined the best approach to collect feedback on the work of the CSR team, and represented the CSR team at various stakeholder engagement meetings. These meetings consisted of leaders from philanthropic and corporate foundations, nonprofit organizations, and various NYC government departments. It was a unique opportunity to understand the role that financial services companies, banks, and investors play in making a positive impact in the communities that they are located in and influence.
