For its first community initiative of the year, Goldberg Segalla participated in a clothing drive benefiting Dress for Success, which DRI covered in the “DRI Cares” column of The Voice. Throughout the months of January and February, attorneys and administrative staff at GS collected gently worn business attire to donate to the organization.
Dress for Success is an international not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping women achieve economic independence and thrive in the professional world. They provide networks of support, business attire, and professional development tools for women in more than 150 cities in 30 countries. Since starting operations in 1997, the organization has helped more than one million women worldwide.
The drive was organized by the firm’s Women’s Initiative, an internal effort designed to empower female attorneys and administrators at GS with professional development, mentoring, and networking opportunities, and to create lasting positive change for women in the firm and beyond. Dress for Success speaks to the initiative’s mission of addressing the challenge of gender inequities in the legal industry and professional world by prioritizing and promoting the principles of equality and inclusion.
