Westwood has a long history of community involvement and support of local charitable causes. This involvement is a cornerstone of our culture, drives employee engagement and makes employees proud to work at Westwood.
In honoring Westwood’s history of community involvement and support of local charitable causes, Westwood’s Charitable Events Committee (CEC) supports and partners with organizations that embrace activities that align with Westwood’s core values of teamwork, excellence, integrity and placement of client and stakeholder interests above our own. Every year, Westwood supports several charitable organizations focused on issues including education, children’s needs, homelessness, food insecurity and disaster relief. Westwood also matches charitable contributions made by employees to further support the organizations that are most important to them. The CEC is committed to supporting, promoting and organizing charitable giving opportunities for Westwood and its employees through fundraisers, sweat equity initiatives and community outreach opportunities.
