On April 30, 2014, Day Pitney was a sponsor of NJ LEEP's "Diversity in the Legal Profession, Diversity in Leadership VI" event in Jersey City, New Jersey.

NJ LEEP is a community-based organization that empowers urban youth in underserved neighborhoods in northern New Jersey to achieve academic success in college and law school. NJ LEEP students achieve successful outcomes by building skills through law-related, mathematical and other educational programs, developing the habits necessary for lasting success and community leadership, and gaining exposure to role models who have achieved academic and professional success.

Special honors for stellar public leadership in the promotion of diversity at the event were presented to Susan Blount, Executive Vice President and General Counsel of Prudential Financial and Gregory K. Palm, Executive Vice President and General Counsel of The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. 475 guests attended the event, including Day Pitney attorneys Dennis LaFiura, Benjamin Haglund, Paul Marino, Greg Parliman, Warren Casey, Rachel Gonzalez, Andres Mayor, Nancy Todaro, Lisa Gonzalo, and Matthew Miller.
