Save the date: Janury 29, 2008 Meeting

December 10, 2007

Save the date: The first WIP meeting of 2008 will be held on Tuesday, January 29, 2008. If you would like to get involved, now is the time! We are looking for topics for monthly meetings, and we are seeking your input. Come and tell us what issues are important to you, or start off the New Year by getting involved in a WIP Sub-Committee or Task Force. At the January 29th meeting, WIP will provide details about a new joint task force in which WIP is partnering with Flex-Time Lawyers LLC. Among other things, the joint task force will conduct a survey of Philadelphia firms with respect to their maternity leave policies, and publish a report on its findings. Deborah Epstein Henry, Esq., Founder & President of Flex-Time Lawyers LLC, will attend the meeting and provide more details about the joint project. Co-chairs Maria Feeley and Danny Banks will also moderate a panel discussion on “How To Have It All – The Career And The Family.” In addition to Deborah Epstein Henry, Jenimae Almquist, with Raynes McCarty, and Sharon Caffrey, with Duane Morris, will serve as panelists. We hope to see you at the meeting!

    I hope that the survey will be for firms’ parental policies – not maternity leave policies. I think we need to frame the whole discussion in the context of joint parental responsibility for child care. As long as the assumption is that women have the primary responsibility for child care, I don’t think we will ever make the kind of progress that is necessary for women to have equal participation in the legal profession.
