Making a difference in our community
We share our valuable skills to help others. Our efforts support the employability agenda and raise awareness and support for the disadvantaged.
When we founded Hedley May, we made a commitment to make a positive impact in the broader community. Through internships, training skills workshops and career mentoring, we apply our skills to maximise the potential of others.
Our community partnerships
Making the Leap, a London-based charity that improves social mobility by raising the aspirations of, and increasing opportunities for, young people between the ages of 11 and 25.
Hedley May has very much enjoyed the opportunity to work with students from The Urban Assembly School for Law & Justice (“SLJ”). In the past school year, we hosted a group of ambitious 10th graders at our New York office for half a day to teach them about executive search and what a typical work day looks like for a range of professionals at our firm. We also worked with a group of inspiring high school seniors, most of whom will be the first generation college attendees, as they perfected their application essays for a range of colleges and accompanying scholarships. This winter, we created an interview skills workshop to help motivated 9th and 10th grade students prepare for interviews for competitive and intensive programs that will provide them with ongoing mentorship opportunities throughout high school and college. We most recently appreciated being part of the school’s annual Career Day. The students of SLJ are incredibly hard-working and we always leave each interaction with them overwhelmed by their dedication and excited for their bright futures.
