Loeb & Loeb LLP is pleased to announce that the firm has partnered with the OnRamp Fellowship, an innovative “returnship” program that provides experienced women lawyers re-entering the profession with an opportunity to update their skills and contacts through paid, one-year Fellowships with major law firms.
The goal of the OnRamp Fellowship is to enhance the talent pipeline in prestigious organizations with diverse, high-performing women who have the potential and the desire to advance into leadership roles. This unique experiential learning program gives returning women – many of whom have opted out of the legal and banking fields for a period of time to raise children – an opportunity to demonstrate their value in the marketplace while also broadening their experience.
“We are very proud to take part in the OnRamp Fellowship’s mission to bring outstanding women attorneys back into practice,” said Michael D. Beck, Chairman of Loeb & Loeb LLP. “Our participation in this excellent program is just one of the ways in which Loeb & Loeb is committed to continually building our firm’s population of talented women attorneys, and creating opportunities for the advancement of women and diverse individuals in the legal profession.”
“There is a leaky pipeline in the legal and banking professions. Plenty of women join at the entry level, but many leave to raise children or for other reasons as they become more senior,” said Caren Ulrich Stacy, Founder of the OnRamp Fellowship. “The organizations participating in the Fellowship realize the tremendous benefits gained by bringing these talented women back into the fold.”
Loeb & Loeb is one of 25 law firms and legal departments participating in the Fellowship in 2015. For more information and available positions, visit www.OnRampFellowship.com.
