Through the relationships I have developed as a Board member of GAWL, my business revenues have grown exponentially.
GAWL provides me with a reliable referral network that reflects the diversity and quality of legal talent in Georgia.
I know of no other organization that offers such diverse, individualized benefits for its members.

Programs and Special Events
We seek to present programs and opportunities that meet the needs and interests of our very diverse membership. Signature events include the Annual Dinner, the Leadership Academy, and the Annual Art Auction, which is hosted by the GAWL Foundation. Upcoming events are listed on the website.
In GAWL Mentoring Circles, participants give and get advice, share professional and personal experiences, and make friends that last a lifetime. GAWL mentoring circles are not accepting new applications at this time, but we will announce enrollment opportunities when they arise.
According to studies, women lawyers believe they are missing out on mentoring and training that would better equip them to be leaders in their firms and communities. The GAWL Leadership Academy is designed to give women lawyers a crash-course in the subjects they need, and they will be able to network with other rising stars from across the state. The next academy will take place in the 2013-2014 board year.
