Ladies, women, colleagues, friends:

IWIRC Houston is having its first membership drive of the year on March 26, 2019, from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. at Finn Hall. IWIRC (and its generous sponsors) will provide the snacks and the drinks - the event is free. All you have to do is stop by. 

And, as if we haven't sold you on the event already, here are a few statistics that highlight why your membership in IWIRC is so important.

     - As of a couple years ago, women made up only 31% of the bankruptcy judges (I don't have to tell you that the S.D. Tex. no longer accounts for any of this percentage)

     - 19% of equity partners are women

     - Last, but not least, a random sampling of women in our bankruptcy courts here in Houston based on some transcripts I had available to me:

                  Hearing 1 (Westmoreland – Motion Hearing):     10 women out of 28 attorneys

                  Hearing 2 (iHeartMedia – First Days):                  5 women out of 30 attorneys

                  Hearing 3 (PetroQuest – Motions Hearing):         2 women out of 13 attorneys

                  Hearing 4 (Westmoreland – Motion Hearing):      4 women out of 31 attorneys

We can change these numbers. Let's start at Finn Hall over some drinks. See you all in March.

Member Testimonials

"IWIRC is a great organization for getting connected. Not only is the group fun and professional with its members easy to get to know, the IWIRC conferences prior to the large events (ABI and NCBJ) make those conferences much more manageable as one already sees several friendly faces."
