"I have been a practicing attorney for just over 20 years. I can say without question that MWL has had a tremendous impact on my professional life. One of the things that attracted me to MWL was it mission of advancing the success of women attorneys. This mission is epitomized in the wide variety of leadership opportunities MWL provides for women in the legal profession...At each step along the way, I have become more convinced that MWL continues to be as relevant today as it was when it was first organized. It makes a difference—not just to other women or other attorneys, but also to society in general—to see women serving in leadership roles. "
"MWL’s mission of advancing the success of women lawyers and striving for a just society resonates with me as a practicing attorney, and my MWL membership has led to incredible networking and relationship-building opportunities with fellow attorneys, while allowing me to support an organization with a mission every bit as relevant today as when it was first founded in 1972. MWL serves an important role within the legal community as it continues to create a space for women attorneys and their supporters to celebrate the success of women attorneys, address the changing and on-going challenges and barriers that still exist in legal workplaces, and encourage the growth and development of women as leaders in the profession."
