To empower, support and encourage all women working, or who aspire to work, in the legal profession.
We achieve this by organising social and networking events, training courses, workshops and discussion panel events.
For the sake of clarity, we are an inclusive organisation supporting and welcoming anyone who identifies as a woman,
including our friends from the LGBTQ+ community.
Our events are open to everyone who has an interest in the equality and diversity in our profession. We believe that anyone can achieve success in their career and personal development, by being supported by our organisation and like-minded people, making valuable connections and developing through our training sessions.
We are able to organise these events supporting women through sponsorship. We are grateful to our sponsors and friends of WILK who help and support us to make all these amazing things happen!
If you are interested, please see our Sponsorship page for more information.
We empower and encourage women to be the best versions of themselves. We support women in law not only to dream to achieve great things, but to actually believe that those dreams are attainable.
We encourage women not only to smash through the glass ceiling, but to leave the ladder there to encourage the next generation of female lawyers. Did you know that in 2017, women make up 59% of non-partner solicitors, compared to just 33% of partners (up from 31% in 2014). The difference is greater still in the largest firms (50 plus partners), where 29% of partners are female. (Source: SRA)
In the last three years, we have grown a wonderful, supportive community both online and offline. As our popularity and the demand for this much needed community increased, we have increased our Girl Gang.
