March is very special to Lawyers Club because it is Women’s History Month, a month to recognize “sheroes” for their important past and present contributions to our society.

This Black History month I introduced you to Charlotte E. Ray – the first African American lawyer in the United States; Judge Jane Bolin – the first female African American judge in the United States; and Barbara Jordan – the first African American women from a Southern state to serve in the U.S House of Representatives. Each of these women attained recognized excellence in their field by fully pursuing their passions and interests.

Last Saturday we had our Winter Leadership retreat with our Board, Staff and Co-Chairs! Each Lawyers Club year we have two leadership retreats, Summer and Winter, where we come together to connect, receive an organizational update and plan for the next half of the Lawyers Club year. While both leadership retreats in 2020-2021 have been virtual, the retreats nonetheless invigorated our leadership, all of whom are volunteers except the staff.
