On Tuesday, May 12, the WLALA Career Mentoring Committee will host its first Pasadena mentoring circle in addition to its regular Westside mentoring circle. The mentoring circles bring together junior and “seasoned” women lawyers for a night of lively discussion and mentoring. Whether you’re looking for advice, an opportunity to commiserate, or just some casual conversation with fellow WLALA members, these dinners are the perfect setting. Although these events are for current WLALA members, guests may attend their first mentoring circle as a non-member.
The Pasadena mentoring circle will take place at 6:30 pm at Pitfire Pizza, located at 730 S. Arroyo Pkwy in Pasadena. With this event, the Career Mentoring Committee hopes to reach out to a different group of WLALA members who are interested in attending a mentoring event but for whom the Westside and downtown mentoring circles are not as convenient to attend. For those interested in the Westside mentoring circle, it also will take place on May 12 at 7:00 pm at the usual location, Louise’s Trattoria on Pico Boulevard just east of Overland. In June, the downtown mentoring circle will take place again at California Pizza Kitchen in the Wells Fargo Center downtown.
The mentoring circles are designed for attorneys; if you are a law student in need of mentoring, please contact Krysta Kauble Pachman, Chair of the WLALA Law Student Mentoring Committee. Krysta will gladly match you with an attorney mentor. She can be reached at email@example.com.
If you have any questions about the mentoring circle dinners or have a suggestion for a topic of discussion, please feel free to contact Career Mentoring Committee Co-Chairs Jeanne “Gigi” Wanlass (Westside dinners) at firstname.lastname@example.org or Cathy Ostiller (downtown and Pasadena dinners) at email@example.com. We hope to see you at one of our dinners on May 12 – either at Pitfire Pizza in Pasadena or at Louise’s Trattoria in West LA!
