According to a recent study by the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), there are more than 9.4 million woman owned businesses in the United States, and one in five of those businesses with revenues of $1 million or more are owned by women. Unfortunately, in the legal profession, the number of women-owned law firms remain proverbial “hidden figures” – because for too long, the legal profession has ignored the vital role that women owned law firms and alternative legal services companies play – a topic that I’ve covered here , here, here and here .
At some point, I realized that it’s time to take this message beyond my blog – and so I was thrilled to find an opportunity to do so when I was invited to join the board of a newly formed national organization, Women Owned Law and to serve as one of the co-chairs of the Washington D.C. chapter. We will be hosting a kick-off event on April 25, 2017, 6pm – 8pm at the Fastcase offices in Washington D.C. You can learn more about the event here or to RSVP here.
Thanks to our host, Fastcase, the leading next-generation legal research service and “the smarter alternative for legal research.”
If you are interested in joining an organization where you will be able to get involved quickly, or if you have ideas for future events, please contact me at email@example.com or Women Owned Law .
