Type of Programs

One of Fish & Richardson signature EMPOWER Women's Initiative programs is our group mentoring program, EMPOWERment, which is designed to foster meaningful connections across practice groups and offices. Mentoring pods, compiled of principals, associates, and technology specialists, meet monthly to discuss topics like relationship building, career planning, and stress management and to participate in pod-chosen social activities.

All groups were given guiding principles and topic suggestions to help frame their time together. Participants have reported increased feelings of connectedness and found great value in getting to know women across the firm that they might not have had a chance to spend time with otherwise.
