Wolfe Cares Highlights
To celebrate Diversity Month and Earth Day in April, the Wolfe Cares team partnered with Padre Plaza Community Garden in the South Bronx, NY for an employee volunteer event. The event focused on the intersection of Diversity & Sustainability specifically as it relates to food insecurity in the New York metro area. Wolfe employees partnered with Padre Plaza to provide tools, material, and labor so that the garden could start its growing season which is central to the health and well-being of the local community.
Wolfe has a work hard, play hard culture and this is most evident in our annual Sales vs Research softball game. Each August, our employees gather in Central Park to show our comradery for each other through friendly competition. The winner of the softball game gets internal bragging rights for the remainder of the year…not to mention the losing team has to wear suits in the office for a week!
The Wolfe Cares Library is a true reflection of our employee’s interests and features books across the spectrum: from classic financial theory to mystery/thrillers and everything in between. To keep the inventory fresh, the Wolfe Cares team runs an annual Book Donation Drive and asks employees to donate a book (or two or three) that they would recommend to a colleague. The Library is open to all employees as a free resource to grow their knowledge and curiosity.
Every year in December, Wolfe Cares Leadership sponsors a food drive to support City Harvest. City Harvest is NYC’s largest food rescue organization, helping to feed more than 1.5 million New Yorkers who are struggling to put meals on their tables.
Alex DeRosa displays Michele Lent Hirsch’s “Invisible: How Young Women with Serious Health Issues Navigate Work, Relationships, and the Pressure to Seem Just Fine”, her “Book of the Month” recommendation in honor of Disability Pride Month (July). “Invisible” is Lent Hirsch’s debut novel and is a blend of literary journalism and memoir on gender, health, and American inequity. After experiencing the isolation of multiple life altering illnesses, Lent Hirsch set out to research and explore other women’s experiences navigating through the life with chronic illness and disability. Through Invisible, Lent Hirsch connects with a large group of people who identify as women. While the book is not perfect, Invisible provides the reader with unique insight into the insular world of illness and disability for women in the United States.
Maddy Wiebe (L) and Grace Ayika (R) display their “Book of the Month” recommendations. Maddy selected Christopher McDougall’s “Born to Run,” a true story about the author’s adventures into the highly secluded Mexican Copper Canyons to learn about an Indian tribe of “super athletes” called the Tarahumara. Grace selected Erich Fromm’s “L’Art D’aimer (The Art of Loving)”, an examination of human nature and the idea of love as an activity. The book was originally published in French in 1956 as part of the World Perspectives series edited by Ruth Nanda Anshen.
In November 2021 Wolfe Research donated 192 turkeys or 2,316 lbs. of turkey to families in need in the Washington Heights and Inwood area.
