GTWI promotes a uniquely empowering and diverse culture where individuals are respected and have the opportunity to contribute, develop leadership skills, and grow their business. Through the GTWI and Greenberg Traurig Denver office’s Great Minds Great Hearts campaign, the firm supports the inclusion and advancement of women in the legal profession with unique programming and resources designed to benefit the firm’s attorneys, their clients, and future lawyers. The Great Minds Great Hearts program, part of the overall Greenberg Traurig Philanthropic Fund, provides grants to local nonprofits in categories including Arts & Culture, Diversity, Education, Leadership, and People in Need. The organizations chosen to receive funding also count on the active participation and support of Greenberg Traurig attorneys.
Greenberg Traurig’s drive is focused on donations of women’s professional business accessories for Dress for Success, including: work appropriate shoes, jewelry, watches, scarves, belts, and handbags; and leather portfolios, briefcases, pocketbooks, checkbooks, billfolds, and wallets.
