Ginsburg Initiative

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her husband, Marty Ginsburg, modeled a true partnership in pursuit of gender equity. Their commitment to equal justice pervaded their personal and professional lives and will have a lasting impact on the legal profession and our society. To honor their legacy, the Center for Women in Law is proud to announce the Ginsburg Initiative, to advance gender-neutral initiatives that support systemic change, such as best practices surrounding work assignments, performance expectations, parental leave, and transparency in career development.

We invite supporters and allies who share our vision for a legal profession that exemplifies equity and justice for all to join the Ginsburg Circle to support this initiative.

The Ginsburg Circle consists of donors making gifts of $1,000 or more to support the initiative.  Learn more about  joining  the Ginsburg Circle.

The Center hosted a virtual panel discussion February 2, 2021, Justice Ginsburg’s Impact on Gender Parity in the Practice of Law, on the legacy of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Learn more about the speakers here
