Margo Walsh grew up in Cumberland, Maine, and graduated from Waynflete in 1982. After earning a BA in Psychology from Wheaton College, Margo moved to New York City and began a career in college and MBA recruiting. Recruiting for the Investment Banking Division within Goldman Sachs, Margo worked to develop the Diversity Round Table in order to provide mentorship and assimilation support for people of diverse backgrounds. For ten years following, she recruited for the rapid expansion of the international human resources consulting firm, Hewitt. She has over 20 years of experience in recruiting, staffing, and employee development.
Margo then founded MaineWorks. According to its website:
“MaineWorks is a temporary labor staffing company specializing in the field of industrial construction. Our employees are reentering the workforce and face real barriers to employment. Most MaineWorks’ employees are in recovery from substance abuse. Many come from low socio-economic backgrounds and have previous non-violent felony convictions – a stopping point in most job applications. Whether they are a Mainer, a New American or a returning Veteran, they all face the same feeling of being ‘apart from’; it is our mission to make them feel ‘part of ‘ something.”
