Sponsor DirectWomen


The mission of DirectWomen is to increase the representation of women lawyers on corporate boards. DirectWomen identifies leading women lawyers from around the country who are able to provide the experience, independence, and business judgment required for board effectiveness. Through its various programs, DirectWomen develops and positions women attorney leaders for board service. DirectWomen also serves as a resource for companies seeking qualified women board candidates.

In order to conduct the annual Board Institute and other programs, we rely on the support of corporate and law firm sponsorships, as well as individual donations. Join the coalition of leading companies, AmLaw 100 law firms, and individual donors who reinforce their commitment to board diversity by supporting DirectWomen.
