Goal III Report: Women's Advancement into Leadership Positions in the American Bar Association
Source: American Bar Association
From the report:
The Commission on Women in the Profession … has been the leading voice for women lawyers, working to help women advance and succeed in all sectors of the profession, as well as the ABA. By improving the status of women in the profession, the Commission has helped to address and stem the attrition of women from the profession. Also, it has been at the forefront to increase the number of women in leadership positions within the ABA, law firms, corporations, government, and academia. Indeed, it is striking that there is a correlation between the attainment of leadership in the ABA and national recognition as a leading woman lawyer. We can be proud of the opportunities available to women today versus 20+ years ago. This further underscores the importance of the ABA in enabling women to achieve prominence and distinction.
