Offering a helping hand
L.E.K. takes its responsibilities—especially its social responsibilities —seriously. Since 2006 L.E.K. has been driving social impact through its pro bono initiative. In 2016 the firm doubled its commitment to support two pro bono clients annually in the U.S. For example, L.E.K. recently completed a project with the Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF), whose biggest goal is to eliminate Parkinson’s disease (PD) in our lifetime. A team of consultants helped MJFF to better understand the potential of wearable and mobile technology and their use in R&D efforts. Ultimately, the development of an evergreen tool to evaluate and prioritize mobile technologies has the potential to significantly reduce costs for PD research and touch the lives of millions of people worldwide living with PD. The work has earned L.E.K. and MJFF a Consulting Magazine Excellence in Social & Community Investment Award.
