(Sept. 15, 2017) - Global advisory firm AlixPartners announced today it received the Consulting Magazine 2017 Award for Excellence in Social Community Investment for its longstanding partnership with Washington, D.C.-based educational advocacy organization School Justice Project (SJP).

The firm’s efforts with School Justice Project were recognized yesterday at the University Club in New York during the magazine’s fourth annual Social & Community Investment Gala Awards dinner. The firm will also be featured in the October issue of Consulting Magazine.

“We’re honored to receive such a wonderful recognition for our work with School Justice Project and the impact the organization has had with students in the community,” said Susan Markel, Managing Director and Local Market Leader for the firm’s Washington, DC office.

“We appreciate the invaluable support AlixPartners continues to give us to protect and enforce special education rights for students in need,” said Claire Blumenson, Executive Director & Co-Founder of School Justice Project.

The Excellence in Social and Community Investments awards are based on the research compiled by the magazine on the client work consulting firms do and investments they make for social and community causes by partnering with non-profits, government entities, and associations for the greater good.
