KWM in the Community
We care for our clients, staff and the communities in which we work.
The KWM in the Community program engages KWM partners and staff to assist with pro bono advice, charitable giving and volunteering activities.
The program involves a range of initiatives to achieve multi-level support for members of our community who are most in need and the organisations that assist them. The wide range of support we provide allows for the engagement of both legal and non-legal staff.
In 2015 KWM launched KWM Global Communities, an initiative that connects our regional community programmes under a common banner and across global causes. To celebrate the launch of KWM Global Communities, we released the inaugural KWM Global Communities Report. The 2015 Report showcases some of our pro bono achievements, community & charity contributions and diversity initiatives, highlighting the impact that we make as a global firm.
We are committed to leading the legal and professional services industries in minimising the impact of our activities on the environment and making a difference in the communities in which we operate.
Diversity & Inclusion
KWM continues to promote diversity and inclusion programs, recognising that diversity in our people and diversity of thought are critical to our business. They provide the optimal conditions for innovation, agility, collaboration and teamwork.
Caring Company Award
In 2015 KWM was again awarded The Hong Kong Council of Social Service Caring Company, 5 years + Logo. The Caring Company Award recognises companies who have made the effort to promote corporate social responsibility. 2015 was the sixth consecutive year in which KWM has received the award.
Our joint pro-bono co-ordinators, Urszula McCormack and Lauren Dray, were each also nominated as a Caring Ambassador 2015 by KWM which recognises contributions by individuals in corporate community involvement programs.
