Registration is now open for the National Association of Women Lawyers' inaugural Women's Initiatives Leadership Boot Camp, scheduled for May 1, 2015 at the Historic Thayer Hotel in West Point, New York.

Designed to explore a more strategic approach to crafting and implementing women's initiatives, this program also directly supports the NAWL Challenge to increase the percentage of women equity partners and chief legal officers to at least 30%.

In 2012, the NAWL Foundation released the first-ever National Survey of Women's Initiatives: The Strategy, Structure And Scope of Women's Initiatives in Law Firms, which provided benchmark data about the types of activities that women's affinity groups in law firms undertake, the funding, oversight, and expectations for such groups, and the factors that enhance or impede the sucess of women's initiatives.  NAWL's Leadership Boot Camp will utilize the Survey by combining hands-on learning with insights and guidance to help develop women's affinity groups' leaders and help them select high-impact activities to maximize their women's initiative's influence and to yeild better business outcomes.

This unique and intimate program held at the historic Thayer Hotel in West Point, NY is specifically designed for current and future leaders of corporate and law firm women's affinity groups.
