Mindy Wilensky is one of the many unsung heroes of NECC. As the creator and director of NECC’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP), she has been a key figure in developing a workplace culture that allows the Center’s staff to thrive. NECC believes that its staff is the most valuable asset, so providing resources to help them overcome personal or work difficulties is a necessary part of helping them succeed. The EAP is a free benefit to staff and has been utilized by thousands of staff members since its creation. Wilensky’s leadership and vision for the EAP has been extremely important to helping staff provide the best care and education to the Center’s students.
