Fewer than half of AmLaw 200 firms report a woman among their top 10 rainmakers, and according to the National Association of Women Lawyers women represent just 15 percent of equity partners. We want better. And you’re here because you do too.

Ellesquire provides six weeks of action-oriented content. Along the way, participants receive help in weekly coaching sessions from experienced legal marketers who know the challenges of Big Law (and networking when you’re the pickup parent).

Nice to meet you.
