    Women's Initiative

    The Women’s Initiative has as its mission to support and encourage the success of women at Locke Lord. ‎Goals include hiring, promoting and retaining female lawyers, encouraging women to take leadership roles in ‎the Firm and providing mentoring and networking opportunities. Women’s Initiative meetings are held ‎throughout the year and address head-on the everyday issues facing women practicing law in a large firm.‎

    In addition to our own Women’s Initiative, we are a member of the Chicago Coalition of Women's Initiatives ‎in Law Firms and the Houston Bar Association Gender Fairness Initiative, which have as their goal the ‎promotion of women in law firms. Further, Firm Chair Emeritus Jerry Clements serves on the Board of ‎Directors of the National Women’s Council, a nonprofit organization that seeks to provide a collective voice ‎for women of all backgrounds, classes and ages. Janis Loegering, a member of the Firm’s Executive ‎Committee, is a Founding Member of the Center for Women in Law, which was established in 2008 by a ‎group of women devoted to advancing women in the law — from first-year law students to the most ‎experienced and accomplished attorneys.

    Locke Lord received Gold Standard Certification for three consecutive years (2012-2014) from the Women in ‎Law Empowerment Forum (WILEF) for integrating women lawyers into the highest levels of Firm leadership. ‎It is one of just 45 firms nationwide to receive the WILEF honor in 2014.‎
