CNYWBA ANNOUNCES PROGRAMS CHAMPIONING
WOMEN IN LAW
Today marks International Women's Day 2019, which is a day dedicated to the recognition of women's contributions in all sectors of society. We are asked to both celebrate women's achievements, while also campaigning for further progress towards achieving gender balance in business, government and other sectors.
Women have undeniably made significant advances in the legal profession, but reports indicate there are still gender gaps in pay, workplace recognition and representation in positions of leadership. The Central New York Women's Bar Association celebrates the achievements women have made in society and in the legal field. We believe continued progress in the advancement of women in the legal profession, as well as other sectors of society, is inevitable. We are pleased to announce two programs that hope to further that objective in our own community:
Women: Work, Life & the Law, on Monday, March 11, and the Women in Law Summit and Reception on Wednesday, April 3.
- Nicole Marlow-Jones, President, CNYWBA

About the Women in Law Summit
Women have comprised nearly half of all law students and incoming associates at law firms for many years, yet they remain outnumbered by men in the senior ranks of law firms, corporate law departments and other practice settings. We can work towards achieving more gender equality in the profession by learning from one another and supporting each other in our careers.
Through a combination of inspiring speeches, including a keynote by
ge Janet DiFiore, a panel discussion by accomplished women in the legal profession and a break out session, the Women in Law Summit seeks to promote diversity and inclusion in the legal profession and equip attendees with the skills needed to succeed!
