The Women in the Profession Committee of the North Carolina Bar Association was created in 1993 based upon a recommendation from the NCBA’s Commission on the Status of Women that a permanent committee be established to assist women in the profession and to work toward a gender-neutral legal society in North Carolina.
Today, the Women in the Profession Committee serves as a resource for the NCBA by, among other things, identifying ways to encourage and maintain the active participation and advancement of women in the NCBA and the legal profession. This is achieved, in part, through educational programs, awareness initiatives, and networking events that highlight the accomplishments of women attorneys.
The Women in the Profession Committee is currently comprised of approximately 45 members who function through a structure of subcommittees. Committee members also serve as liaisons to other NCBA committees in order to promote and accomplish the Committee's goals.
