    Results from NAWL's "2017 Survey on the Promotion and Retention of Women in Law Firms" was cited in a recent Legal Intelligence Law article focused on the lack of diversity in leadership positions. The article cited the NAWL Survey in stating,  

    "The 2017 Annual Report from the National Association of Women Lawyers shows that only 19 percent of equity partners are women—only a slight increase from 16 percent in 2007, and largely unchanged in the past 10 years. People of color make up about 6 percent of equity partners, women of color about 2 percent, openly LGBTQ people only 2 percent, and persons with disabilities less than 1 percent.”
