WMC- Boosting Inclusion & Retention of Female Lawyers Through Allyship
June 28, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Register to join us on Tuesday, June 28th at 12:00p.m. for our next DWLA/DAYL Women’s Mentoring Circles’ program:
Boosting Inclusion & Retention of Female Lawyers Through Allyship
Women have comprised more than half of all law school graduates since 2000 yet less than 38% of all practicing lawyers in 2020 were women. According to a 2021 survey conducted by the American Bar Association, female attorneys report being more dissatisfied with their employers than their male counterparts (thanks to gender bias, a pay gap and unique day-to-day challenges their male counterparts don’t typically face).
Despite a decades-long emphasis on attraction and retention of women lawyers within the industry, clearly more work must be done. One way to improve the overall status of women in the legal profession is through effective female allyship. In this presentation, participants will learn:
- What allyship is and why it’s so important for inclusivity, engagement, and retention.
- The case for female allyship (why it’s not enough to rely on our male colleagues).
- The steps to becoming an effective ally.
- Practical examples of how to be a more effective ally and advocate.
This event is open to everyone, not just Mentoring Circle participants.
MCLE credit pending.
