Steve Aptheker, a co-founder and former managing partner of the Firm, and a partner in the Litigation and Transactional practice groups, will be receiving a MoXY Award at a luncheon on April 26th at the Mansion at Oyster Bay honoring men who have advanced the careers of women. Moxxie Mentoring Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit corporation established in 2012 to expand the mentoring program activities formerly performed under the auspices of Moxxie Network LLC. Its mission is to support and foster the career advancement and leadership development of young women through generational mentoring, and since 2010, Moxxie has mentored over 275 young women. Moxxie believes that women are an integral and vital part of business and that women’s innate skills and perspectives add real value to the profitability, culture and operations of an organization. Moxxie further believes that men play an equal role in this campaign and must be included in Moxxie’s efforts. Mr. Aptheker shares these beliefs and has played a key role advancing the careers of several women at the Firm. We congratulate Mr. Aptheker, and we applaud Moxxie for recognizing his efforts.
