Lewis Rice Women to Women Forum Donates Bikes to Women on WheelsOctober 15, 2021
The Lewis Rice Women to Women (LRW2W) forum hosted a bicycle ride along the Katy Trail to support Women on Wheels, a World Bicycle Relief campaign to provide bicycles (Buffalo Bikes) to women and girls in rural or developing communities around the world. The event resulted in the donation of 23 bikes to women and girls in need.
“LRW2W is just one example of Lewis Rice’s commitment to diversity and inclusion,” said Sarah Mullen, vice chair of the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee at Lewis Rice. “We are thrilled with the turnout from this important and fun event, and we’re honored to support an organization that is making a real and lasting impact in the lives of women and girls across the globe. We plan to host this event again next year and look forward to raising even more awareness about this fantastic organization.”
At Lewis Rice, LRW2W provides a vehicle to build careers through training, mentorship and networking at all levels. LRW2W is an important part of the diversity, equity and inclusion effort at Lewis Rice, and one of many initiatives that enables the firm to attract, retain and recognize some of the most talented legal minds in St. Louis.
Since World Bicycle Relief’s founding in 2005, the organization has delivered more than 594,000 bikes, directly impacting 3.5 million lives. Buffalo Bikes provide a way for people in developing regions of the world to overcome the barrier of distance in attending school, receiving healthcare and delivering goods to market.
