Welcome to the Washington, D.C. Chapter of the Coalition

In April 2019, the Coalition expanded to the Washington, D.C., Metropolitan Area.  With networking events, panel discussion programs and speakers with expertise in business development, career advancement and wellness, the DC Chapter has already grown into a vibrant center for attorneys in the DC area to come together, share information and network. 
After starting with a steering committee of 7 women, in a very short time our Board of Directors, Committees and Officer roles have expanded membership to 10 member law firms and dozens of women, and has offered opportunities for women in the legal community to network with each other, take on leadership roles, distinguish themselves, and promote the advancement of women as legal leaders in our community.

Upcoming Events:
