Our Mission

The Women's Bar Association of Massachusetts (WBA) is where women lawyers in Massachusetts come together to build important personal and professional relationships. The WBA welcomes male lawyers who support our mission to achieve the full and equal participation of women in the legal profession and in a just society. The WBA is about women helping women. When you join the WBA you can expect leadership opportunities, rewarding work on our committees, a networking forum for business development, and more.

At the WBA, our vision is to build a strong community of women lawyers who make a difference in the profession and in society at large. At the WBA, our purpose is to achieve the full and equal participation of women in every aspect of society. We believe a strong community of women lawyers is essential to the administration of justice.

At the WBA, our philosophy is that women lawyers face common challenges and can teach and learn from one another. We believe the individual and collective achievements of women lawyers should be celebrated.

At the WBA, our goal is to focus on you. We want to help you strengthen your professional expertise and develop the skills you need to become leaders in the profession and community. We recognize that our members have different needs and that everyone defines personal and professional success a little differently. We want to support your personal and professional growth by providing you access to the resources you need and connecting you with other women who share your passion for the law, for women's issues, and for making a difference. We are the #1 resource for women attorneys in Massachusetts.

At the WBA, we are women with a vision. We are ambitious, proactive and focused. Join us today.
