The goal of our annual Global Day of Service Program is to help foster and strengthen connections across the firm’s global platform and promote, recognize, and celebrate our personnel’s commitment to community service around the world. Each year a different theme is selected.

Our 2016 Global Day of Service theme was “Investing Across Generations.” Personnel from each of the firm’s offices worldwide volunteered with more than 70 community organizations and charities, many focused on elderly or youth services, throughout the week of September 19-23.

In recognition of our Global Day of Service initiative in 2013, K&L Gates was awarded the "Global Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative of the Year." Given as part of The American Lawyer’s 2014 Global Legal Awards under the overall “Citizenship” category, the honor recognized the firm’s efforts to battle hunger during our inaugural Global Day of Service, when more than 1,500 lawyers and staff across our global platform pitched in to help local nonprofit and service organizations including food banks, food distribution centers, and shelters.
