Taking WLE to the next level

As the WLE Program approaches its 20th Anniversary, we are grateful for the growing support of alumni and friends who are stepping up to make an investment in the program. For many years, women leaders (alumni and non-alumni) have participated in the curricular program by sharing their perspectives on the pressure, obstacles, and dilemmas they faced in achieving their positions. Now, thanks to generous philanthropic support from members of our community, we will be able to enhance our curricular offerings and provide mentoring, networking, leadership training, and other professional development opportunities for our students, alumni, and broader legal community. 

The Women’s Leadership Circle will help us grow our endowment to support a full time managing director, and will enable us to make even greater strides towards improving gender equality in the legal profession. If a major gift is not possible, please consider making a sustaining gift of $1,000 per year (or $84/month) and join our Sustainers Circle. For more information about how you can get involved, please contact Shara Boonshaft, Assistant Dean for Development & Alumni Relations.
