National Women’s Law Center Gala – Case Study

About This Project

The National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) fights for gender justice – in the courts, in public policy, and in society – working across the issues that are central to the lives of women and girls. The center advocates for women’s and LGBTQ rights through litigation, policy, and culture change initiatives.




JDC Events was tasked with registration, RSVP management, and seating for an 800-person gala hosted by the NWLC. The foremost challenges were to source the correct equipment required to print individual name badges as sustainably as possible and to ensure that registration and seating were handled quickly and smoothly on the day of the event.




In the weeks leading up to the event, the JDC team carefully planned and tested seating and logistics, especially the printing process, which was designed to be quick and efficient. The team sourced Dymo printers, which allowed for fast printing and zero paper waste. With a team of 10 people and a satellite registration desk in addition to the main registration desk, staff were able to rapidly attend to each guest on the day of the event – despite multiple requests for last-minute seating changes. Thanks to meticulous planning and equipment testing, the gala was a major success, registration was handled more efficiently and quickly than in past years, and the team was able to meet the client’s request for greater sustainability and greater efficiency.
