Aspirant Establishes Initiative with Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh

Aspirant is excited to share that we have established a new initiative with Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh (WC&S). The initiative, titled “Aspire to Your Full Potential,” will provide WC&S with funds to assist women and children gain freedom from abuse through transition-related expenses, including: relocation fees, transportation costs, moving expenses, education, legal fees, utilities, furniture, and even security systems. We created a video featuring our President, Mike McClaine, and WC&S' CEO/President, Nicole Molinaro, discussing the initiative below.

This initiative is part of Aspirant’s larger Connection of Hope campaign, which was started to help raise awareness of and prevent domestic violence, and continues Aspirant’s long history with WC&S. To contribute to the initiative at a corporate or individual level or if you're overall interested in Connection of Hope, enter your information to the right.

2019 Corporate Champions Against Domestic Violence Event

This is why Aspirant hosted a Corporate Champions Against Domestic Abuse event with Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh (WC&S). At the event, attendees learned more about the overall cause, the RUSafe app we developed for WC&S, how other companies are getting involved in this space, and most importantly, how they can help their own organization champion efforts to keep employees safe from harm. The video below is a recap of the event and interviews with our speakers, including the Pittsburgh Mayor's Office, Burson Cohn & Wolfe, and Koppers, Inc.

Aspirant’s Campaign to Raise Awareness of and Help Prevent Domestic Abuse

In late 2017, Aspirant began its journey to raise awareness of and help prevent domestic abuse through our newly announced campaign, “A Connection of Hope,” by holding an interactive session with key business and community leaders in the Pittsburgh region. The following video highlights key takeaways from the session, including our strategy and tactics for 2018, and how you can get involved.
