The Burdens of Both, The Privileges of Neither

American Bar Association

The Multicultural Women Attorneys Network, a joint project of the ABA Commission on Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Profession and the Commission on Women in the Profession, issued a report during the 1994 ABA Annual Meeting in New Orleans. Created in 1989, the Network solicited information regarding the status of multicultural women attorneys. The report is a compilation of three years of research, discussion groups and regional conferences. The Network hosted a series of roundtable discussions in Atlanta, Georgia; Washington, D.C.; Dallas, Texas; San Antonio, Texas; Atlantic City, New Jersey; and Seattle, Washington. Small groups of twelve to fifteen representing a cross section of the multicultural women attorneys' community gathered to discuss the status of multicultural women attorneys in the profession. To obtain a wider sampling of opinion, the Network also held regional conferences in New York City and San Francisco. These conferences fulfilled multiple goals: fact gathering; dissemination of information; and creation of a sense of the larger policy issues flowing from individual experiences. Each conference drew 150 to 200 participants.
