Continuing our support for Dress for Success, Saxena White has made it an annual tradition to sponsor a table at the Dress for Success “Style for Hope” Luncheon in West Palm Beach, Florida. Celebrated on International Women’s Day, the event is an inspiring afternoon of fellowship and empowerment while enjoying a luncheon and powerful guest speakers. Saxena White guests include other local women-in-business from South Florida.
Saxena White participated in the International Coastal Cleanup, the world’s largest one-day volunteer effort to clean up the marine environment. As a sponsor of the event, Saxena White worked with organizations like the Ocean Conservatory and Boca Save Our Beaches to preserve the health of our beaches and marine environment.
When Saxena White has the opportunity to give back to our community, we literally run with it. Over the past few years, Florida Atlantic University has hosted their Annual Stand Among Friends Emb(race) 5k in our hometown of Boca Raton, Florida. Saxena White, together with people of all ages and abilities, crossed the finish line to benefit programs and services designed to assist those with disabilities. Our team attends this event annually as part of our continued efforts to support and promote diversity.
To help educate elementary school students about marine preservation, Saxena White has sponsored local non-profit Boca Save Our Beaches in its development of an interactive workbook, titled Seymour’s First Journey into the Sea of Debris. The workbook, which has been used by educators across Palm Beach County, follows the story of a seahorse named Seymour who embarks on a lesson about marine debris. The workbook has been distributed to elementary students at participating schools to further environmental education across the Palm Beach County school system. Jessica Gray, the founder of Boca Save Our Beaches, presented copies of the workbook to members of the Firm.
As a certified woman-owned business, Saxena White strongly believes in empowering women in the workplace. Saxena White’s Diversity Committee has regularly partnered with Dress for Success of the Palm Beaches, a local chapter of the national non-profit organization, for various events. The mission of Dress for Success is to provide professional and personal development services to aid women in becoming financially independent, achieve gender equality, and break the cycle of poverty. Each year, we host a ‘Check Your Purse’ charity drive. Members of our Firm collect new and used purses and fill them with donated personal items and monetary gifts.
