Holland & Hart Joins Boise Corporate Community Pay It Forward Initiative

Holland & Hart client indieDwell issued a challenge to Boise partner Alison Johnson, on behalf of the firm, to participate in the corporate Pay It Forward random acts of kindness challenge that has been making its way across Idaho’s Treasure Valley. The challenge was simple: find a way to pay it forward with an act of kindness or appreciation to positively impact our community.

Holland & Hart is proud of its longstanding tradition of giving back to the communities where we work and live by supporting organizations that strengthen the community. The firm enthusiastically accepted the Pay It Forward challenge and developed a two-pronged response centered on another firm core value, our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Holland & Hart is paying it forward by creating an endowment with the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights for its Human Rights Certification Program. Geared toward working professionals, the Certification program consists of online modules broken down into 10-minute increments (six total hours of training). The firm’s endowment will support the cost of registration fees for 50 new-to-the-program businesses and non-profits who can register up to two employees to participate. By underwriting the Center’s Certification program, up to 100 employees of businesses and non-profits in the Boise community can acquire a better understanding of the values of diversity and identify ways they can become champions of those values within their own organizations.

Holland & Hart is also paying it forward by purchasing educational books that help parents and school age children learn and have conversations about diversity, equity, and inclusion, which the firm has donated to the Women’s and Children’s Alliance based in Boise.
