    Relaunch Workshop/Coaching Series
    Fall, 2019, by Carroll Welch, Career and Executive Coach

    Participants will develop a realistic plan for reentry into a legal or alternative legal career, be supported by a cohort of similarly situated relaunchers, and have the ability to connect with bar association members. Includes phone check-ins, and one-hour private coaching.

    Eligible participants will be attorneys who have practiced for 2+ years before taking a career hiatus of at least 2 years for reasons related to childcare, eldercare, illness (of his/her own or of a family member), other professional pursuits, or some other career-affecting issue. 

    Each participant will attend 4 in person workshops and 3 accountability/check in group phone sessions. During the series, each participant will receive customized feedback from the coach/facilitator and the cohort on their resumes and Linked In profiles so that they can revise and update these tools for use in their relaunch processes.

    Participants will be led by a highly experienced, certified career and executive coach who is a past director of Pace Law School’s New Directions for Attorneys program and who has supported hundreds of women in relaunching their careers.

    Fee: $690 for members of WCBA or WWBA, $850 for nonmembers
