President's Message

I was just reading about a lawsuit that was filed against a major law firm by three female associates in California who allege that the firm delays pay and advancement opportunities for female attorneys who take maternity leave or other benefits offered to working mothers.  Whether these particular allegations prove to be true or not, this has been a persistent problem and has led many women to leave law firm ranks after having children.  We all know that the number of female equity partners at law firms is shockingly low and increasing at less than a snail’s pace.  While many firms tout their wonderful family-friendly policies or how they allow mothers to work flex time or part-time, few actually promote working mothers to equity partnership.  To those that do – we applaud you and encourage you to share your stories with WLALA and offer advice so that we all can learn from your leadership.
