Accelerate: First-Year Associates

Accelerate: First-Year Associates goes beyond the traditional orientation training offered at law firms to dig deeper into the questions surrounding retention of women associates and the pipeline to partnership.

“The program is unique in that there is no other similar forum where I would feel comfortable talking about what I talk about at the Roundtable. It also feels good to know you are not the only one going through such things.”

“I now think I can stay at my firm for a longer period of time than I did at the beginning of this program.”
