    Recognizing that women attorneys of color face many obstacles to advancement in the legal profession, the Multicultural Women Attorneys Network - a joint project of the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession and the Commission on Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Profession - published in 2000 Dear Sisters, Dear Daughters: Words of Wisdom from Multicultural Women Attorneys Who've Been There and Done That. These letters described their experiences, feelings, and concerns with respect to inspiration, career path, and "the big picture." The overwhelming response to Dear Sisters confirmed the need for a companion volume that would offer strategies for professional success. This second book, Dear Sisters, Dear Daughters: Strategies for Success from Multicultural Women Attorneys, is the result of that effort and discusses strategies, tips, and advice for a variety of work environments.

    Minority women lawyers encounter persistent and pervasive barriers to their career opportunity, growth, and advancement. They experience unique disadvantages based on the double whammy of race in addition to gender. Women lawyers of color fare worse than women generally and even men of color. The result is the exodus of women lawyers of color from the profession at an alarming rate. So many minority women lawyers are seeking guidance on how to succeed in the legal profession. They are searching for ways to quell fears of whether they belong, whether they can succeed, and how they should address issues of marginalization, sexism, and racism. In addition, they are searching for answers on how to balance work, family, and personal values.

    These dynamic, accomplished authors represent a variety of cultural backgrounds and practice settings, and many have been the firsts in their field. They have held key leadership positions and received numerous awards recognizing their legal skills and their significant contributions to the legal profession.
