After being involved in a Minneapolis Industrial Products team who worked on a Habitat house that was sponsored in part by a McGladrey client, assurance director, Kari Henry and assurance associate, Kayla Kirby learned of the Twin Cities Women Build program. They asked Minneapolis office managing partner, Mike Nelson, if he would support a team of women for a Women Build daylong event. His response was, “Absolutely!”
Together, the McGladrey team put up the garage trusses and started covering the roof while others cut and installed concrete siding trim in preparation for siding the house.
Kari Henry said, “It was a great day of team building, with a lot of laughter. It was empowering to see the progress we made in one short day and to know that we were helping a family who has worked hard to achieve a dream that many people take for granted—home ownership.”
