The Coalition of Women’s Initiatives in Law is a non-profit membership association that brings together law firms, government, and companies of all sizes. The Coalition was founded in Chicago in 2008 by a group of women lawyers intent on joining forces with others to benefit the collective whole. Today, in addition to the Chicago chapter, the Coalition has a chapter in New York. The Coalition continues to explore other chapter locations. Currently, more than 120 law firms and companies are members of the Coalition, stretching the reach of the Coalition to thousands of women attorneys in its member organizations. The Coalition provides dozens of programs each year. Our goal is to foster career advancement and professional development, promote dialogue and a support-network among members, and to help address the many issues facing women lawyers and women’s initiatives today.
