Launching a Successful Comeback: Women Lawyers’ Guide to Returning To Work
Many women lawyers find themselves needing to step away from their careers at some point in order to address other life priorities, especially as it relates to caring for children and other family members. However, when it comes time to resume their careers, many struggle to find well-paid, high quality opportunities with the flexibility they require. The result is that many talented, well-trained lawyers hoping to resurrect their careers feel stifled and lack a distinct plan for the best path forward.
Join us at this half day program, led by certified career coach, Jill Lynch Cruz, PhD of JLC Consulting, will help women attorneys who are looking to return to their careers to prepare for and navigate the “on ramp” back to the practice of law given the current legal landscape. This program will provide insight into the real reasons many women attorneys leave their careers and what really gets in the way of their return. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore potential career paths and learn how to position themselves with potential employers. Through a variety of awareness activities and skill-building exercises, this program will also help attendees learn to promote their value more effectively and mobilize their networks to help them launch a successful comeback. A panel of attorneys who have navigated this career route will also provide insight into the issues and provide guidance to attendees.
This is a Joint Program between DWLA and the DBA. CLE Pending.
