The MWL Equity Committee is tasked with general oversight for MWL's projects and initiatives related to the systemic advancement and success of women attorneys. The Committee's work not only combines the foundational efforts of the previous Leadership Committee, Parity Committee and Judicial Sub-Committee, but further expands their reach as defined by the 2018-2020 MWL Strategic Plan. 

Overall, the Equity Committee works to develop and implement action steps for MWL to achieve equity for women in the legal profession, including: 1) assessing the current status of women in the legal profession in Minnesota; 2) identifying barriers that prevent women from achieving equity; 3) steps (specific programs/initiatives) that can be taken to overcome such barriers; and 4) implementation of action steps as appropriate. Activities are inclusive of both the bench and the bar.

Current Equity Committee activities may include: coordination and oversight of the MWL Media Project, activities related to attaining non-profit and corporate board positions, specific practice area pipeline projects (judicial, firm, corporate, etc.), further development of MWL's Data Research Project, general oversight for and promotion of The MWL Compendium, and other initiatives in support of MWL's Strategic Plan. 

As appropriate, the Equity Committee may review, research and make recommendations to the Board regarding policy or legislative issues as they relate specifically to the equitable position of women attorneys in the legal community.
