Dickinson Wright Women’s Network to host annual ‘Sharing Our Success’ event to benefit Humble Design

The Dickinson Wright Women’s Network will host its annual “Sharing Our Success” event from 6-9 p.m. on Thursday, April 21 at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham.

 The “Sharing Our Success” event will be a Mad Hatter’s tea party featuring hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and networking between Dickinson Wright’s female attorneys and their clients. The Dickinson Wright Women’s Network was formed to support and advance women within the firm and the practice of law. Originally focused on fostering interaction and mentoring among the firm’s female attorneys, the Network has expanded over the years to include the firm’s female clients and women in the communities where the firm’s offices are located – throughout Michigan, and in Phoenix, Columbus, Nashville, Lexington, Las Vegas, Reno, Washington DC, and Toronto. 

This year’s charitable organization is Humble Design. Humble Design is a Detroit-based non-profit organization helping families transitioning out of homeless shelters by providing furnishings and design services. They turn empty houses into clean, dignified and welcoming homes. It’s a very simple idea that can change a family’s future.

Dickinson Wright is encouraging guests to bring a donation, such as bedding and bathroom décor items, to support Humble Design. To learn more about Humble Design, please visit their website at www.humbledesign.org.
