What an amazing journey! In 2006 the ABA published, “Visible Invisibility,” a disturbing report detailing the massive exodus of women of color attorneys from their law firms and in many cases, the legal profession.
As a result of that report, LIWOCA was born and launched annual conferences motivating, educating, inspiring and training women of color attorneys and providing business development and networking opportunities, essential to ensure their success as leaders in the profession.
It is a joy and a privilege to meet, year after year, so many talented shareholders, corporate general counsels, partners, judges and government officials from every corner of the United States who selflessly share their
expertise and guidance as well as encouragement to the LIWOCA attendees to help them rise to the pillars of the profession.
Join us for our 2020 conference where we will celebrate 15 years of serving women of color attorneys, providing scholarships to outstanding law students, and fueling the pipeline with our support of the High School Pipeline Project.
