Programs: Mentoring

A central component of MAMA Seattle’s mission is mentoring, and MAMA Seattle’s specific mentoring program is a core part of that mission. The purpose of the program is to pair a law-student mother or first-time mother who is already in practice with an attorney-mother who can provide advice and encouragement as mentees navigate being both a mother and an attorney. The program allows new attorney mothers (either a law student or a practicing attorney) to problem solve and talk about the personal and professional issues they face with an experienced mother attorney. This personal connection to another mother attorney provides a supportive place to ask questions and learn how others successfully manage family and work responsibilities in the legal world.
