NAWL Mid-Year Meeting

Meet the Challenge: What’s Next for Women Lawyers?

NAWL and other women’s groups are currently addressing a host of issues that are impacting upon or are of concern to women lawyers. What are the hot-button, cutting-edge issues that women’s affinity groups, local women’s bar organizations, women’s committees in mainstream bars, and women lawyers can expect to be facing in the next decade? A panel of representatives from some of the leading organizations that focus on women in the law discussed what they are working on, what they anticipate will be the next issues around which women lawyers need to rally, and what things women lawyers need to be thinking about in order to be prepared for the ever-evolving legal profession.

Panelists Included:

Sharon E. Jones, Founder and President of Jones Diversity, Inc. (Moderator)
Dolores Atencio, Visiting Scholar, University of Denver Center for Community Engagement and Scholarship
Linda Bray Chanow, Executive Director, University of Texas Center for Women in Law
Caren Ulrich Stacy, Founder & CEO, Diversity Lab
