Postponing Finals

I had two finals this week, but i didn't go to them. Instead, I spent the week at home with my family, freshly a family of four. Our son, Landon Lee George arrived on December 1, 2017 at 11:20 p.m., the Friday before finals, and the last day of classes. I had a final scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday this week. I still have a final scheduled for Tuesday next week, and a paper due Friday. I hope to make it to the final and turn in my paper, but we'll see how things go. My son will be two weeks old…

Take Two: It’s just the beginning

Whew it’s December. This year has flown by rather quickly. I can’t believe that 2017 is almost over. I was just talking with a friend the other day about her birthday party, only to realize that it was five months ago. It’s crazy how time flies by (when you are having fun), but also when you are busy. I have to keep reminding myself what day it is because all the days mesh together. Being a part of the Writers in Residence Program has taught me to appreciate what we have. There’s a saying that we want what we can’t…

Be Courageous Enough To Just Be You

We started this blogging journey together almost a year ago. By that time, I had read plenty of articles about the state of women of color at large law firms and how a significant number of these women will leave their law firms before even being considered for partnership (women of color remain the most underrepresented group at the partnership level). Frankly, the stories became redundant and many were terribly disappointing. I named this blog “Concrete Ceilings and Open Doors: Women of Color & The Law” because women of color often hit a “concrete ceiling” in terms of advancement and…

Skirting the Ceiling: Success in Strength

Over the past year as a writer-in-residence, I explored gender dynamics and sexism in law. We talked about gender stereotypes and sexual harassment and how they affect workplace dynamics. We learned about women in law who were the first to break gender norms and how the industry's treatment of women evolved over time. Most importantly, we've engaged in conversation. Whether it be in the comments at the bottom of this page, on LinkedIn, or on Facebook, I've learned so much from each of you and am honored that so many took time to read and think about these issues that shape so…

Join the Conversation:  When Will Law Firms Drop the “Primary Caregiver” Distinction?

In April 2015, Johnson & Johnson announced that to better support “the modern-day family,” all new parents – regardless of primary caregiver status – would get eight weeks of paid parental leave.  Birth mothers would receive an additional nine weeks of paid disability leave.  A few months later, Netflix and Microsoft also rolled out parental leave programs that did not distinguish between “primary” and “secondary” caregivers.  Netflix parents would get unlimited paid leave in the first year of their child’s birth or adoption.  Microsoft parents would get twelve weeks of paid parental leave, in addition to eight weeks of paid…

The best career advice I’ve ever received is this question to ask yourself

It was my first day back at work as a litigation associate after my Dad had suddenly died two week earlier. Rebecca, a partner at the firm, invited me into her office to see how I was doing. I wanted to tell her that the world seemed different. People looked different. Even my usual large cup of Peet’s coffee with a splash of cream tasted different. Instead I said, “Hanging in there” with a half smile. Part of me wanted to go home and crawl under the covers and part of me wanted the distraction of work. “Go home.” she…

Get Curious and Take the Call - The Best Career Advice I Ever Received

The best career advice I received came from a mentor and fellow attorney when I was a midlevel associate trying to figure out my next role. We were discussing a new position she recently accepted at her company, and I remarked how she always seemed to find such novel and interesting things to do with her law degree. She then paused and told me to keep my eyes and ears open. “I’ve learned the hard way, Michele, that opportunities rarely come in a beautiful package, tied up with a bow, at the perfect time, with your ideal team and an almost…

The No. 1 Piece of Career Advice I Have Received Is Two Words Long

“Follow up.” Follow up after a networking event, follow up after a meeting, and follow up with yourself.  This two-word piece of advice is applicable to career, school, and life, and has served me well (when I actually consistently apply it).  “Attend networking events” is a popular piece of career advice given to young professionals.  But how many of us are guilty of going to a networking event, having engaging conversations and exchanging contact information, only to let the person’s business card sit in your purse for months until you realize you forgot to email them to follow up? While…
