Living in Burlington
Why would a couple of guys from Long Island decide to come to Burlington, Vermont to start an ice cream company?
Where they were dazzled by the natural beauty of this New England state? Green Mountains to the east, Lake Champlain to the west, a patchwork of northern forest, working farms and orchards, and the sunsets are to die for. And of course, there’s the world famous foliage in the fall.
Perhaps it was the dynamic arts and music scene that spawned Phish (ha!) and includes cultural celebrations like the Discover Jazz Festival, the UVM and St. Mike’s theater series, and the South End Art Hop.
Maybe they thought skiing, snowboarding, boating, hiking, biking, camping and running the Vermont City Marathon would give them the chance to work off some of the ice cream.
Then again, maybe they thought all of these things plus tight-knit communities and great school systems made the area a great place to raise a family.
Who knows what it was that made these guys decide Burlington was home, but 35 years later they’re still here, and we agree they made the right choice!
Ben & Jerry’s “Justice, equity and Ice cream Fellowship”
Howard University x Ben & Jerry’s Partnership
The Fellowship program is an initiative that we began to build out a more diverse and equitable talent pipeline into Ben & Jerry's North America. We identified that we need to bring strong talent into our company, to ensure we center marginalized perspectives and voices within the work we do internally and externally. We’ve chosen to explore an academic fellowship as an opportunity to work with MBA students, diversify our talent pool, build a pipeline of black and African American leaders, and engage with talent who are passionate about our values and mission. Successful fellows of the program will be able to benefit from several different leadership building opportunities, mentorship from experienced business leaders, a chance to project manage a real Ben & Jerry's brief and receive a financial award to put towards their education.
About the Fellowship:
- Targeted efforts to support the next gen pipeline of Black business leaders
- Sponsored and endorsed by Ben & Jerry's leadership team
- One-Year fellowship geared towards first year MBAs
- Fellowship will offer opportunities for Community building, Leadership Development, Sponsorship/Mentorship, High Impact Professional Experiences, Scholarship, Ben & Jerry's Work Experience, and Ben & Jerry's Cultural Immersion
