To help women thrive in the law so that they can contribute to the emergence of a healthier legal system.
We fulfill our mission by providing:
Community: We provide spaces and platforms for women to connect meaningfully with each other sharing their professional and personal wisdom.
Networking: We bring together attorneys and other legal professionals across a variety of practices and specialties to help you create a more diverse network.
Inspiration: We provide speakers and articles that inspire women to reach higher into their calling and deeper into themselves.
Opportunities: We support women who seek appointments and leadership positions in governmental entities, civic groups and the judiciary and share news of job postings.
Education: We provide informal continuing legal education workshops and gatherings to foster our members’ professional development.
Philanthropy: We unite to be a force for good in our community. We work together to make a difference, and we dedicate our time and talents to help those in need.
Support: We support each other’s success. We recognize that our profession is challenging, so we provide mentors, friendship and informal gatherings so we can learn more and laugh more together.
Mentoring: We are in the process of developing a structured mentoring programme, in the interim we allow women to list themselves as “open to mentor” and “seeking mentor” on our directory and encourage informal mentoring.
