We are delighted to be shortlisted in the Best community engagement category at the 2017 Management Partner Forum (MPF) Management Excellence Awards for our sponsorship with the Royal Hibernian Academy and our Art Avenues Community Engagement Programme.
The gala dinner and Awards ceremony will take place in London on Wednesday 8 March 2017.
The community engagement award recognises the management team that has developed a reputation for their firm of being great corporate citizens.
Our Corporate Social Responsibility Programme is driven by the CSR Committee which includes representatives from across the firm, including partners, lawyers and professional support staff. Our CSR Programme focuses on the following:
- Charitable giving with a focus on education
- Environmental responsibility
- Pro Bono services
In an interview with the Sunday Independent, Natalie McGuinness, Director of Marketing and Business Development, said: “Unusually for a law firm, we have an entire art marketing programme. Art is part of our corporate social responsibility activity in the community and is also a great connector with other businesses. In partnership with the Royal Hibernian Academy, we run an initiative called Art Avenues, which works with local school children. It is a really rewarding programme and it is great to have the children exhibit their art creations in the boardroom for our staff.”
