Ms. JD Global Education Fund Los Angeles Networking Event- Thursday, November 13!

Ms. JD's Global Education Fund Presents:
Annual Los Angeles Networking Happy Hour
Thursday, November 13, 2014 from 6-9:00 p.m.
Wolf and Crane, 366 E 2nd St, Los Angeles, CA 90012


On Thursday, November 13, 2014 Ms. JD’s Global Education Fund (GEF) will host a Annual Networking Cocktail  Hour in Downtown Los Angeles. The event will take place at the Wolf and Crane bar in the trendy Little Tokyo area of Downtown Los Angeles from 6 p.m.-9:00 p.m. Our goal with this event is to introduce GEF to Los Angeles and allow attendees to network with like-minded Los Angeles area legal professionals.

The Global Education Fund (GEF) enables women in developing countries to pursue legal educations who would otherwise lack access to higher education.  GEF partners with Makerere University in Uganda, where more than 45% of women over the age of 25 have no schooling and men are more than twice as likely as women to have access to higher education.

Ms. JD chose to work with Makerere University through its Gender Mainstreaming Directive to provide this opportunity to women from low income backgrounds because of the multiplier effect. For every two law scholars the Global Education Fund Sponsors the Carnegie Corporation matches the grant and sponsors six additional scholars!

The event will offer the opportunity to network with lawyers and other professionals from nearby firms and organizations, promoting awareness for the campaign while directly contributing to GEF with each drink purchase.
