|MWL Media Resource Project|
The MWL Equity Committee is pleased to announce its MWL Media Resource Project. This Project is focused on developing a list of MWL members who are willing to be contacted by local and/or national media sources for information and/or comments on stories related to their area of practice or knowledge, both on the record and off the record.
As MWL is committed to fundamentally elevating the status of women in the legal profession, the MWL Media Project will serve to increase the visibility and influence of MWL members by promoting women attorneys as leaders in the public arena.
Additional Details and Frequently Asked Questions
Who will be able to access the MWL Media Contact List?
All participants must be current MWL members. To be included on the list, members must fill out an interest form available HERE. Attendance at a related seminar sponsored by MWL is recommended. Details on upcoming seminars will provided shortly.
Annually, participants must resubmit the interest form to reaffirm their participation in the MWL Media Project for the coming year, and to update any information that may have changed since the previous year.
Should participants let MWL know if they are contacted by the media?
Please provide MWL Communications Manager Hannah Zuercher (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the following information: Your name, employer and contact information; contacting media source name and affiliation; date of contact; subject of contact; details on when comments may be published/broadcast (as appropriate).
How does the MWL Media Contact List relate to an attorney's employer media policy?
All participants acknowledge that they and/or their employer are responsible for any media contact they may have pursuant to any applicable media policies and media contact approval procedure implemented by their employer.
Generally, MWL is not responsible for any member interactions with media, statements made, and/or information provided. MWL's involvement is limited to simply connecting media sources with potential attorney resources.
How can a participant be removed from the Media Contact List?
