KSP was founded by 20 women partners representing 10 leading law firms headquartered in Manhattan. KSP seeks to provide a forum to address issues of common concern relating to the advancement of women in the profession, as well as a platform to leverage the collective strength of the women partners in our firms to advance our leadership in professional, civic, educational and charitable endeavors. By providing opportunities for our colleagues to connect with each other, we hope to achieve the following goals:

  • Leadership
    • Advance service and pursue leadership positions in professional, civic, educational, charitable and other organizations.
  • Professional Development
    • Promote professional opportunities and development.
  • Mentoring
    • Advise group members and colleagues on career development.
  • Workplace Improvement
    • Improve the diversity of, and quality of life in, the profession.
  • Education
    • Host civic and professional leaders and other speakers of interest.
  • Community
    • Provide opportunities to network with women leaders from other professions.
  • Pro Bono Activities and Philanthropy
    • Work with, and provide support to, non-profit and charitable organizations.

KSP’s initial membership was limited to ensure that our meetings would be a manageable size. The 10 participating firms were selected based on their common characteristics and New York headquarters. All aspects of KSP, including membership, are subject to change over time as our mission and goals evolve.
