Virtual - GoTo Webinar

In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the MBBA will be hosting a series of 60-minute sessions for black law firm associates intended to provide career support. Each session will feature two black law firm partners (one transactional and one litigation) and will be moderated by Paula Edgar, Partner, Inclusion Strategy Solutions LLC, and MBBA Officer.

Each session will be shaped by questions and concerns submitted anonymously prior to each session, however topics during these frank conversations with associates may include:
Anxiety around firm cuts and furloughs, hours, staying productive with billable/non-billable work), mental health support/dealing with feeling overwhelmed, disconnected, and isolated.
Professional development /branding, navigating office politics, self-care/ taking personal time off, dealing with the “Home Office” and disruption (children, pets, technology), and more.
