The Commission on Women Goes Digital

Now you can take all of the best Perspectives articles, legal news, and women’s history with you wherever you go when you access our social media profiles on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn from your smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer.

Facebook

Engage with the community of women lawyers on Facebook as we celebrate the successes of the women lawyers—past and present—who have broken down barriers and paved the way for others with our new Women Lawyers Wednesday segment. Are you a current trailblazer? We would be delighted to recognize you and your work. Simply send us a private message via Facebook for a chance to be a featured lawyer on our page. There you also will find links to our YouTube account, which provides educational videos created to develop and enhance skills necessary for your practice, biographies of and acceptance speeches given by past Margaret Brent Award honorees, and videos of previous Commission on Women in the Profession events. Like us on Facebook, www.facebook.com/abacommissionwomen. Subscribe to our YouTube video channel at www.youtube.com/ABACommissionWomen.

Twitter

Connect with us on Twitter to take part in up-to-the-minute conversations about the experience of being a female lawyer. Voice your opinions on current events, gain inspiration from true-to-life applications of grit and the growth mindset, stay current on the ways to recognize and challenge instances of bias and discrimination, and share the latest law jokes and cartoons with your network—all the while discovering the history of amazing women like Victoria Woodhull, Charlotte Ray, and Belva Ann Lockwood, whose seemingly small contributions to the field of law have snowballed into the profession as we know it today. Follow us on Twitter, www.twitter.com/ABAWomen.

LinkedIn

Finally, expand your business network with the help of the Commission on Women LinkedIn page. Keep up with contacts made through ABA programs and receptions and stay informed of the strides made in the field by accessing links to the best books, programs, and webinars for your professional growth.
