Programs and Initiatives

Since 2008, the Coalition has offered a wide variety of programming appealing to women attorneys at various stages of their careers.  Last year, our programs reached over 1,000 professional women representing Chicagoland law firms and companies, and offered 12 CLE credit hours.  Members can participate in programs and can serve on various committees that develop programs and support the work of the Coalition.  In 2020, we have been able to successfully pivot many of our programs to an online platform, allowing us to reach even broader audiences.
