The National Women’s Law Center’s Leadership Advisory Committee (LAC) is a high-level advisory committee of talented leaders designed to provide the Center with advice and support on critical issues that affect women and their families. Members of the committee are charged with assisting the Center in building on its success with an eye toward the future, while acting as goodwill ambassadors for the Center.
Individual members of the committee have an opportunity to:
- Engage with the policy challenges facing women and girls by receiving regular updates on the Center’s issues;
- Provide feedback and advice on these issues, as well as ways that the Center can build on its successes;
- Network with dynamic industry leaders including the Center’s Board Members at bi-annual meetings and regional events;
- Lead and participate in subcommittees to help support specific activities of the Center;
- Act as goodwill ambassadors for the Center and help shape the Center with an eye toward the future.
How to Join
The Center selects LAC members primarily from eligible nominees who are employed by entities that provide significant annual support to the Center. LAC membership is renewed on an annual basis. Companies and law firms often consider the LAC an investment in the Center’s mission as well as an investment in their talented staff.
