Joining volunteers around the world, Dickinson Wright PLLC will take part in the Second Annual Global Day of Service, a worldwide initiative spearheaded by Ford Motor Company's Legal Alliance for Women (LAW), the company's professional organization focused on women in the legal practice. The coordinated global effort will assist organizations supporting the empowerment and well-being of women and girls in their respective communities. Dickinson Wright is among more than 70 law firms around the world partnering with LAW to volunteer time and perform pro bono work on a day of community service scheduled for September 26th.
Dickinson Wright is bringing the Global Day of Service to the firm's offices in Detroit, Troy, and Las Vegas and will be volunteering at organizations within those cities. Employees from Dickinson Wright will assist in a wide range of activities including assembling care packages for children and their families.
"As part of Dickinson Wright's long-standing commitment to volunteering at local non-profit organizations in cities where we do business, we are excited to be partnering with our long-time client, Ford, for a day of service across the U.S.," said Anna Maiuri, Member of Dickinson Wright.
Ford LAW Global Day of Service continues this year with a singular vision to help community organizations that are assisting women and girls through educational, empowerment and support programs. Bringing together volunteers from more than eight countries, this day of service is a collective effort to give back to the communities Ford and its partners operate in.
"Through this day of service, we are aiming to marshal the collective efforts of our partners in the legal profession around the world to give back to the community," said Beth Rose, Chief Compliance, Ethics, and Integrity Officer at Ford Motor Company and chairperson of Ford's Legal Alliance for Women. "The passion we share in advocating for and serving our communities extends beyond this one day. It is part of who we are as individuals and drives our community service year round."
