On January 8th, the Women's Initiative Group of Moses & Singer invited secretaries and other support staff to join them in making origami animals to send to the Newtown school of Sandy Hook where the tragic shootings occurred mid December.
Kimberly Klein, chair of the Women's Initiative Group, spoke about how the event came together. "One of our associates, Inbal Awes, brought to my attention a project called 'Snowflakes for Sandy Hook.' So many of us were horrified by the shooting and wanted to do something for the school and community. The project entailed making snowflakes and sending them to the school to create a winter wonderland for the children upon their return. Before we could make the snowflakes, the school announced that they received so many snowflakes they did not have room for more! While wonderful news, we still wanted to do something, so we substituted colorful and fun origami animals and characters for the snowflakes. Many throughout the Firm joined us in this challenging but rewarding endeavor!"
Our thoughts and prayers remain with the families of the victims.
The Women's Initiative was created to provide support, education, and counseling to empower the firm’s professional women in their careers and personal endeavors. We devote significant resources to help female attorneys take charge of their leadership potential through mentoring programs and self assessment tools like personal business plans.
