The Archer Women Lawyers’ Network recently donated a supply of books to Girls Inc. of Greater Philadelphia & Southern New Jersey for their Early Grade Literacy Program. Girls Inc. is a non-profit organization serving the needs of approximately 1,000 girls, ages 6-18, and their families, by offering programs focused on leadership and community service, science, technology, financial literacy and many other life skills.
The organization’s literacy program is designed for children in kindergarten through third grades, helping children develop the skills and attitudes necessary to become proficient readers by the fourth grade. The program uses literacy-based enrichment activities to make reading fun while building critical early literacy skills.
The Archer Women Lawyers’ Network has supported several of the organization’s programs in the past, including their Strong, Smart and Bold Breakfast, as well as hosting a career day in Archer’s office. Girls Inc.’s programming promotes healthy lifestyle choices, responsible decision making, and media literacy.
The Archer Women Lawyers’ Network provides mentoring and networking opportunities by senior women in the firm to Archer’s women attorneys through in-house programs, collaboration with other women’s groups, as well as working with existing groups within Archer such as the Diversity Committee, the Associate Practice Development Committee and the Personnel Committee.
