Baby Steps and a Big Winner

by Becky Gillespie 17. June 2013 09:48
We know that it isn't easy to find the time, and even courage, to be among the first to reach out and talk.

That's why we are especially grateful to the fabulous Legal Balance members who helped get the conversation started last week by posting in our Open Forum. Women like lorelei999, LHedges, Wimsey, Jami Gekas, kmacfadden, aberger, Emily N. Masalski and dsaper, who are among the members who took just a few moments last week to reach out and say hi. They, like all of you, are pioneers and leaders who are willing to invest in this mission because they understand the payoff. These important first steps will help create an environment where the community of women lawyers can come together to share and refer business, connect with mentors, advocate for common causes, and offer each other support. It take time to build trust, but we know that each day and each interaction counts. [More]

And it's at the very heart of our mission: to create a space where women lawyers can come together to share and refer business, to advocate as a group for causes they believe in, to exchange ideas, and to connect with mentors and resources that will help them achieve their professional goals. Of course community isn't something that just happens; trust takes time to build.
