Our Mission

Project W is our commitment to helping women advance their careers, achieve parity in the workplace, launch successful companies and improve their lives. Of course, it's essential that we walk the talk inside our own firm, and we're proud to have been recognized as an industry leader for our success in supporting and elevating women lawyers.

A dynamic and multifaceted campaign with its center of gravity in New York and ongoing expansion to other cities, Project W encompasses a wide variety of efforts across industries as well as multiple partnerships with smart, innovative organizations.
"We need more women who are running companies, who will put women on their boards and make sure women in their workforces get paid equally for equal work."

- Lynn Loacker
