A good leader leads the people from above them. A great leader leads the people from within them. – M.D. Arnold
Congratulations to our good friend Steve Hirsch of Quarles & Brady LLP, who was recently honored at the 20th anniversary celebration of the William E. Morris Institute as one of the founding members and contributors.
Steve has been part of the Maricopa County legal community for more than 40 years and was instrumental in establishing the William E. Morris Institute. The organization is a non-profit program dedicated to protecting the rights of low income Arizonans through:
- Major impact and class action litigation.
- Advocating with federal and state agencies, including the Arizona legislature.
- Technical assistance, training, and support of three legal service programs in the state.
They like to say they do big things to help low income Arizonans.
Why does this matter?
It matters because leadership and law go hand in hand when helping the community. Social status doesn?t determine your rights or your ability to be a leader. Steve Hirsch uses his legal knowledge to help others and advocate for those that need it most. We need people like him (and you) giving back to the Phoenix community.
Leadership isn?t just about a position or status. It?s about being an example to others.
It?s about inspiring your peers to action. It?s about how a few people can change the world in amazing ways. Without community leaders, there would be no progress to change. In an election year, it can be argued that change is needed now more than ever. What can you do to be a leader in the community?
In this season of giving, we encourage you to find an organization that needs someone with your skills and experience and give of yourself.
And Congratulations to Steve Hirsch for recognition of your work in the community!
