Mentor Program with the Ohio Women’s Bar Association!

Dear Law Students,
It is time to join the OWBA Mentoring Program. Our program is organized into “Circles,” much like Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In Circles. Each Mentoring Circle will consist of approximately 1-3 mentors to approximately 8-12 mentees. This allows mentees to have exposure to the influence, experience and wisdom of more than one seasoned OWBA mentor, making the program more interesting and rewarding to the mentees and allowing them to explore more fields of practice within a single mentoring year. It also aids the mentors in their service to their mentees, removing the pressure to come up with interesting, one-on-one activities for their individual mentees. Mentors in the same geographic areas can work together to offer dynamic programs to their mentee “Circle.”

The Circle will meet monthly between January and April, at meetings organized by the mentors. Mentors are responsible for selecting the topic and location for each meeting. Mentors can invite guest speakers or lead the discussion themselves. Mentors and mentees could also attend an OWBA event together.

So what is missing? YOU!
We are currently recruiting mentors AND mentees for the program.

Please join us in this valuable program.
Deadline for applications is November 27th. In early December we will hold a telephone conference call with mentors to discuss the details of the program and provide some very specific guidance in organizing the meetings for your Circle. The Circles are to begin in the middle of January when students return to school.

Mentee Application can be found here: http://www.owba.org/menteeapplication

Sincerely,
OWBA Mentoring Committee
Elyse Akhbari, Stephanie Bowman, Melinda Burton, Stephanie Chmiel, Katherine Decker, Ann Hunt, Lisa Orlando, Denise Platfoot-Lacey, Catey Peters, Grace Royalty and Kate Wexler
