The Latest Charitable Happenings
— Squire Patton Boggs has partnered with the New Voices Foundation to launch a pro bono legal clinic serving startups owned by women of color. Squire Patton Boggs attorneys will provide pro bono legal advice on issues such as business formation, corporate governance, contracts, intellectual property, data privacy, employment and the supply chain. The clinic is looking to help businesses that are currently low-revenue and high-potential expand opportunities for wealth creation and enterprise in this traditionally underserved community.
New Voices Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that offers women of color entrepreneurs access to capital, leadership development, skill-building and networking opportunities through grants, pitch competitions, entrepreneurial summits, accelerators and bootcamps, online learning programs, mentoring and coaching, communications outreach and other programming.
