Volunteer work has always been a part of Joanna Wolfe’s life. A lead process improvement consultant for MetLife, Wolfe spent her childhood and teenage years working in urban gardens and advocating for social justice causes. So serving as the Habitat for Humanity volunteer coordinator for our Cary, North Carolina office was a natural fit.
“There are a lot of successes that go along with homeownership,” Wolfe says. “This work gets at the issues I care about regarding fair housing, and the challenges people face when they don’t have a home.”
Whirlpool Corporation makes a difference in the lives of families through the products we make and the actions we take. Looking back on 2018 with sincere thanks to our employees who impact the global communities where we reside.
