Angel Zimmerman Sworn in as Member of Board of Directors


Angel Zimmerman, a WIL Committee member, was sworn in as a member of the board of directors for the National Conference of Women Bar Associations (NCWBA) last month in San Francisco.  Over 100 women attended the fall summit.   A list of women bar associations that are members can be found at  http://ncwba.org/about-ncwba/mission/.

The NCWBA's mission, vision and objectives are as follows:

MissionThe NCWBA advocates for the equality of women in the legal profession and in society by mobilizing and uniting women’s bar associations to effect change in gender-based process and laws.

VisionThe NCWBA envisions assisting in the creation of a nation that practices equality for women in role, position, impact, education, and financial power.

Objectives:  

To take the strong, reasoned, and determined voice of the NCWBA into the nation’s discourse about law and women’s roles in business, academia, politics, and society;


To inspire, educate and provide resources to women’s bar organizations, including best practices;


To expand concrete methods by which legal practices can increase the diversity and representation of women lawyers at all levels in the practice of law; and


To accomplish visible progress measurable over time, including increases in the number of women lawyers in federal and state judiciaries, academia, law firms, corporate and nonprofit executive offices, and government and political leadership.
