Beginning in October, 2019, the OAAP will facilitate a confidential support group for women lawyers of color in the first 10 years of practice or less. Participants will explore challenges in the practice of law as a woman lawyer of color, learn helpful tools and strategies to personal and professional growth, and find connection and community within a supportive environment. Topics will include racial identity, individual and cultural differences, racism/bias/microagressions, overcoming obstacles to career development, imposter experience, and self-care practices as a path to authenticity, empowerment and perseverance. This group will meet weekly on Wednesdays from 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at 520 SW Yamhill St., Ste. 1050, for six consecutive sessions.
To join this group, please set up a meeting with group facilitator Karen A. Neri, JD, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is no fee, but advance registration is required as space is limited.
