The Women of Color Research Initiative

In fall of 2006, the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession released its groundbreaking report Visible Invisibility: Women of Color in Law Firm as part of its Women of Color Research Initiative. At the 2008 ABA Annual Meeting in August, the Commission released a follow-up report, From Visible Invisibility to Visibly Successful: Success Strategies for Law Firms and Women of Color in Law Firms.

To explore the experiences of women of color in the legal profession further, the Commission on Women in the Profession is fundraising for the next phases of the Women of Color Research Initiative that will focus on providing a comprehensive picture of the issues and experiences of women attorneys of color in corporate and government settings.

The Women of Color Research Initiative, a public service project of the American Bar Association, will receive funding through the ABA Fund for Justice and Education (FJE). The FJE qualifies as an exempt fund under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, and all contributions to the FJE are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
