As an organization that promotes women in the legal profession and in our local community, the Women Lawyers of Santa Cruz County support a woman’s right to choose.


“The decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a woman’s life, to her well-being and dignity. … When government controls that decision for her, she is being treated as less than a fully adult human responsible for her own choices.”

The Board of Women Lawyers of Santa Cruz County (“WLSCC”) is committed to fostering diversity and inclusiveness in the legal profession and in the various other communities of which we are members. The participation of people with varied perspectives, experiences, backgrounds, talents, and interests can foster greater creativity and effectiveness in the practice of law and support the equitable and inclusive administration of justice that is so badly needed by and inaccessible to so many. Diversity in the legal profession is good for the profession, good for business, and most importantly, good for our communities.


With the above in mind, the WLSCC Board offers the following Diversity Pledge for members to sign here.
