Mary McCullough joined Domain as the company’s first Community Engagement Manager in 2015. Since arriving at the company, she has re-developed Domain’s MyCommunity program and partnerships.
“I spent my entire career in nonprofits and education. When I decided to transition into the private sector, I was looking for a company with a strong sense of social responsibility. Domain’s focus on improving lives and livelihoods in the communities in which they build and their corporate philanthropy program impressed me. I knew that my interests in private-public partnerships, social justice and community renewal would be a great fit at Domain.”
What’s your average day like?
“In community engagement, everyday is different. The days see me meeting with local nonprofits to see how we can support them or to see if there are services that we can broker on behalf of our residents. I manage employee volunteerism: both small group volunteer opportunities and large scale regional projects. Each day is different and offers something exciting and gratifying.”
