Women’s Initiative

Our Mission Statement

We believe that the power of social capital is significant, and we hope to foster this capital by connecting women through mentorship events, community service and pro bono activities, and other professional development platforms. Mutual personal and professional support among women in the workforce establishes integral connections that cultivate female role models and help to propel women forward into positions of greater influence across industries. This is especially important in the legal industry. We may each choose our different lanes – the industries and work that we excel in, and commit to, may look different – but they all lead to the same greater goal of creating a society in which strong women lead by example and pave the way for future generations of female innovators and leaders.
