Wolfs Advocaten Joins the IR Global / Sinchi CSR Programme IR Global is the fastest growing professional service firm network in the world with 850+ members, providing legal, accountancy and financial advice to companies and individuals across 150 jurisdictions. The group is renowned for its high ethical standards, innovative approach and niche expertise. In November 2016, the group formed a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program in support of Sinchi, a non-profit, which promotes human rights and the preservation of indigenous culture. The mission of the organisation is to highlight the importance of indigenous culture / knowledge and to uphold the UN’s declaration on the rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).  IR and Sinchi were delighted when Wolfs Advocaten, a well established and highly regarded Commercial Law firm in the Netherlands joined the initiative. “The program was created to build a community of like minded business leaders who can work together towards instigating positive social change. Wolfs Advocaten are an excellent example, as they are a very successful entrepreneurial firm which understands the importance of having an effective global network for both optimizing business opportunities whilst also being able to have a positive social impact. ” Tom Wheeler, MD of IR Global “We care for more than only our clients. Our children need to live in a sustainable world of diversity and cultural heritage in order to understand more than only a national identity. We are proud to support the Sinchi initiative. ” John Wolfs, Partner of Wolfs Advocaten. Funds raised will be used to empower indigenous communities to document their own cultural heritage, by providing equipment, workshops and ongoing support for creative arts such as photography, film-making and music production. To achieve these goals, Sinchi is working alongside acclaimed aboriginal photographer Prof. Wayne Quilliam, who has dedicated his life to working with different tribes around Australia and beyond.
