Parenthood, Esq. 2020

Product ID: CA3080W
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Learn self-advocacy strategies

Lawyers may be advocates by trade, but when it comes to advocating for themselves, many attorneys can find it challenging to talk to their employers about family-related accommodations. As working parents continue to struggle with disruptions to childcare and school routines, the pandemic is forcing a nationwide discussion about the importance of flexible family leave policies.

A particularly timely topic, Parenthood Esq. will not only give attorneys tools to better advocate for their personal needs, but it will also advise employers on how to better support staff through family-friendly policies.
