We have a comprehensive approach to helping our women lawyers thrive and grow:

  • The firmwide Women’s Network is open to all lawyers interested in joining. The network holds "lunch & learns," workshops, career chats with partners and clients, fitness classes, wine tastings, book clubs and other social events, all meant to give women and their allies opportunities to form a stronger community. 
Paul, Weiss recently welcomed 65 women to a Women’s Network Book Club lunch in New York to read and discuss Michelle Obama’s memoir, “Becoming.”   Women of the corporate group at a Paint & Sip event hosted by corporate partner Amran Hussein.
  • The Women's Mentoring Program for midlevel women associates features one-to-one matching with a partner mentor and a formal curriculum meant to enhance the mentees’ career development skills. The program also features social outings and events to strengthen the cohesiveness of women associates at this stage in their careers.
  • WIC Dinners: Partners on the Women’s Initiatives Committee host a small group dinner at their home or other venue. These dinners are purposely small, allowing women the opportunity to spend an evening with other women associates and a partner in their relevant practice group.
  • The Women's Initiatives Committee hosts panel discussions and receptions for women summer associates, including the signature summer event “Pathways to Partnership,” a lively and candid discussion with women partners representing both corporate and litigation practices about how they built their careers at Paul, Weiss.
