The Career Support and Advancement Committee works with the NCAWA Board to promote the purposes of NCAWA by developing programs to encourage professional cooperation among members of NCAWA and to encourage women to enter the legal profession. The Career Support and Advancement Committee endeavors to develop information on employment and career opportunities, and provide any other services to the membership which will encourage professional growth and development. 
The Career Support and Advancement Committee provides members with opportunities for professional development and networking. Further, the committee seeks to provide opportunities for every attorney to give and receive information from other attorneys on a timely basis to allow our members to succeed and thrive in this new economic environment. 
In furtherance of the NCAWA goal to support the entrance into and retention of women in the practice of law, the Career Support and Advancement Committee coordinates and selects recipients of the Balanced Life Workplace Award (BLWA).  The Balanced Life Workplace Awards are typically presented annually by NCAWA at the annual conference to employers that have distinguished themselves by establishing employment policies and practices that assist lawyers in achieving balance between their work and personal lives.
