On May 11, 2015, Day Pitney was a sponsor of NJ LEEP's "Diversity in the Legal Profession, Diversity in Leadership VII" 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.

Over 600 guests attended the event, including Day Pitney attorneys Kendall Wilson, David Doyle, Dennis LaFiura, Ellen Knarr, Benjamin Haglund, Daphney Francois, Paul Marino, Greg Parliman, Frank Rubinetti, and Director of Diversity Asker Saeed, who were joined by students and guests of the firm.
