Inside Counsel, Project 5/165

Inside Counsel, Project 5/165


Share this effort

Only 22% of general counsels are women. That percentage is growing daily thanks to Lloyd Johnson’s efforts. With his help, Inside Counsel trains and publishes a list of the top 100 women lawyers who are trained and ready to take on the role. Their goal – as part of Project 5/165 – is to have 165 (30%) women as General Counsel in Fortune 500 companies in the next five years.

To further the revolution, they need: (1) business leaders invite these women into the inner circle when succession planning for the GC role; and (2) headhunters and other recruitment individuals to contact women on the top 100 list when filling a GC role.
