WOMEN’S BAR ASSOCIATION 2020 WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP INITIATIVE
The Women’s Bar Association’s Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) was launched in 2009 by a group of leaders in our legal community to give back to the next generation of promising women attorneys. WLI alumni include Attorney General Maura Healey and other high-ranking attorneys in government, law firm partners, and accomplished in-house attorneys. This year, the program will be led by Chairs Erin Higgins, Partner at Conn Kavanaugh Rosenthal Peisch & Ford, LLP, and Meredith Ainbinder, Deputy General Counsel of Emerson College, along with Mary Ryan, Partner at Nutter McClennen & Fish LLP, as Senior Chair. They are deeply committed to the WBA and to mentoring.
The team of mentors assembled as the Host Committee includes:
The WLI is designed for women attorneys who have been in practice six to twelve years. Following the model of successful programs in other regions, and building on our own experience, we provide participants with large-scale networking, group mentoring, and one-on-one career development opportunities. Each event leverages the experiences of accomplished women attorneys in Massachusetts interested in cultivating the next generation of women leaders. From no-holds-barred Q&A opportunities to events introducing participants to leaders in the state’s legal and business communities, the WLI provides mentees the opportunities to work with their role models and one another, build their networks, and further their careers.
Individuals may apply to participate in the program. In addition, organizations or individuals may nominate others. If an individual is nominated by another, the individual is expected to submit an application by the deadline. Individuals chosen to participate must be WBA existing members or must join the WBA upon acceptance in the program.
THE APPLICATION DEADLINE IS NOVEMBER 15, 2019.
