Interested attorneys attended an information session on the Group Mentoring Program at the BBA last night.

Last night, the BBA welcomed over 50 new lawyers to its headquarters to learn more about the Diversity & Inclusion Section’s Group Mentoring Program. The meeting gave interested participants an overview of the program and introduced them to the program co-chairs, past participants, and BBA staff. After the program wrapped up, mentees submitted application forms and mingled at a networking reception.

Mentee applications will be accepted through Friday, September 27th 2013. The program consists of several mentoring groups about 8 new lawyer mentees and 2 mentors who meet monthly for discussions about career paths, work life balance and professional challenges and participants also gather for program-wide seminars and networking events at the BBA. The Mentoring Committee will be launching the new mentoring groups next month. More information on the program and the application form are available here.
