Women's Initiative

Our Women's Initiative

Balch’s Women’s Initiative has been a driving force in Balch’s commitment to DEI for more than a decade. This group, actively supporting women lawyers through cross-office friendship, mentorship and sponsorship, leads a robust women’s mentoring program that fosters opportunities for career growth and advancement. 

Our Women’s Initiative also works to highlight and address the complex and intersectional issues facing women in the workforce, and commits to helping women achieve the many versions of lasting success. Through this initiative, this group has hosted numerous networking receptions with women clients; lunch discussions aimed to further cultivate business and professional development skills; and, events with Balch alumnae.
