2012 ABA Women's Caucus - Midyear Meeting

Women's Caucus - ABA 2012 Midyear Meeting - New Orleans


Sunday, February 5th, 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m., Sheraton New Orleans, Napoleon Ballroom C, 3rd Floor

The February meeting of the ABA Women's Caucus will be held on Sunday, February 5th from 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. in the Sheraton New Orleans during the ABA Midyear Meeting in New Orleans.

We have a packed agenda, which includes a special program (from 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.), Town Hall Meeting on Gender Equality. Please join American Bar Association President Wm. T. (Bill) Robinson III and President-Elect Laurel Bellows for an interactive conversation moderated by Lauren Rikleen and Estelle Rogers, co-chairs of the Women’s Caucus. How should the ABA take even more steps to advance gender equality generally and within the profession? What other organizations should the ABA be working with to advance gender equality? How can men help in this struggle? How can we move beyond best practices?

The Women's Caucus meeting is the perfect opportunity to:

  • Meet other ABA members and network with colleagues;
  • Examine issues being addressed by the ABA that are of interest to and affect women;
  • Discuss issues of concern to women lawyers;
  • Find paths to leadership and mentors in the ABA;
  • Announce ABA candidacies, and meet with declared ABA candidates; and
  • Learn more about Commission activities and programs, and increase your involvement with the Commission

FREE - No charge!

Please join us at the February Women's Caucus and share your ideas and information on these issues. Your continued interest and support are crucial factors in our continuing pursuit of equality in the legal profession.

The Women's Caucus is open to all women and men in the profession. Invite your friends and colleagues to participate.
