Traditionally, mentorship provides knowledge, guidance, and advice to the mentee to help develop their career and practice. It is, however, also a powerful tool for promoting engagement, fostering belonging and connection in mentor and mentee alike. If done well, our panelists agree, it contributes to our mental health and well-being, which could mean the difference between the success of the attorney and legal entity, minimizing the damaging impact on self-worth, improving productivity and happiness. Additionally, we will discuss the impact of mentoring on lawyers from underrepresented and historically excluded populations as they are among the most likely to experience the negative impacts of mentorship gone awry.
Hear from our esteemed panel on how mentoring programs have changed, their impact on well-being and how mentoring can enable attorneys to become, or hinder them from becoming, their best selves professionally and personally. This is a discussion for Attorney leaders, administrative leaders to the most junior of attorneys.
