Welcome to the Chicago Chapter of the Coalition
The Coalition of Women's Initiatives in Law began in Chicago in 2008. We are a non-profit membership association that brings together women in
law firms, government, and companies of all sizes. Along with the New York and Washington D.C. Chapters, the Coalition has more than 120 law
firms and companies as members, stretching the reach of the Coalition to
thousands of women attorneys in its member organizations.
The Coalition provides dozens of programs in Chicago 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. In addition to the live programming, the Coalition serves as an enduring network of other women professionals in the Chicago area.
