White and Williams Once Again Recognized for its Women's Initiative
White and Williams has once again been selected to the Honor Roll of Legal Organizations Welcoming to Women Professionals by the Pennsylvania Bar Association Commission on Women in the Profession for its women's initiative, specifically the "Inspiring the Future" formal mentoring program and the Virginia Barton Wallace Award. White and Williams has been selected for the Honor Roll since its inception in 2009.
The White and Williams Women's Initiative was first introduced over two decades ago with lunch and learn programs organized by the women lawyers of White and Williams. Through the efforts of dedicated women partners, the Women's Initiative has grown into a formal mentoring program and is a critical component of the firm's recruiting, retention and business development efforts.
The PBA Commission on Women in the Profession was established in 1993 by PBA President H. Robert Fiebach to involve more women in PBA leadership roles and to explore issues affecting women in the law. Since that time, the Commission has grown from 60 members to well over 600, making it the largest committee within the PBA today.
In 2009, the PBA Commission on Women in the Profession established its Honor Roll of Legal Organizations Welcoming to Women Professionals, which honors Pennsylvania firms, corporate law departments, or other organizations providing legal services, either public or private, that have instituted programs or initiatives that help women lawyers continue and advance in their careers while maintaining a work/life balance.
