Women in the Profession CommitteeCreated in 1989
To assess the status of women in the legal profession; to identify barriers that prevent women lawyers from full participation in the work, responsibilities, and rewards of the profession; to develop educational programs and materials to address discrimination against women lawyers; and to make recommendations to the State Bar Board of Directors for action to address problems identified by the committee.
Sisterhood in the Legal Profession
The Women in the Profession Committee aspires to continue the professional support and advancement of women lawyers based on the theme of sisterhood. “The success of every woman should be the inspiration to another. We should raise each other up. Make sure you’re very courageous: be strong, be extremely kind and above all be humble.” (quote attributed to Serena Williams). Our objective will be to continue to share and enhance our knowledge on women’s issues, provide information on topics of interest to women lawyers, and build awareness and raise the profile of issues facing women in the profession by building on last year’s programs including book club, CLE speaker’s series webinars and promoting and participating in International Women’s Day.
