Benefits of the WLE Program: The time I spent in the Women, Leadership & Equality Program was time well invested. The course-work and experiential opportunities presented by the Program reinforce my confidence and ability to sculpt a career path that blends my legal knowledge with my international business background. The Program contributes to my self-awareness and acceptance that parts of my career path may be challenging as I carve my own way, and it offers tools that enable me to productively encounter those challenges and effectively maneuver in the legal field to find career opportunities with a “good fit.” With great reward, the Program also provides a valuable network of motivated lawyers and serves as a reminder to grow my own network of inspiring colleagues through co-mentoring and sponsorship; this alone has made my experience as a Program participant and Rose Zetzer Fellow invaluable.
