The Stoel Rives Parenting Circle provides mentoring opportunities for lawyers who are or will be parents of young children. The Parenting Circle meets regularly in a group format to help participants support each other in navigating the potential issues that may arise in being a parent and a lawyer. The group offers guidance and support on professional development, career strategy, developing working skills, managing workflow and negotiating working relationships, with a particular focus on the challenges facing parents who are striving to balance work and family responsibilities.
The Parenting Circle is part of the firm's Coaching and Mentoring Committee and works in conjunction with the Diversity and Inclusion Committee. For more information on the Parenting Circle, please contact Kristen Castaños
