Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Between "leaning in," "opting out" and opting back in, women are getting conflicting advice about their careers. One thing is for certain -- each year, Flex Time Lawyers and Working Mother magazine release their annual survey on the 50 Best Law Firms for Women.
Though working at one of these firms won't guarantee you'll make partner, the survey highlights law firms with "best practices in retaining and promoting women lawyers." Unsurprisingly, many of these law firms have many things in common.
Here's a quick look at some of the similarities that make these law firms excel at retaining female talent:
Flex Time and Reduced Hours
Parental Leave and Child Care
Numbers at the Top
Beyond the Firm
Based on this survey, one thing is clear: Firms that make an effort to promote and retain their female talent are successful.
If you think your firm should make it on to next year's list, you can register your firm online. There's nothing like a little competition to steer your firm in the right direction when it comes to implementing more family-friendly policies so women can get one step closer to actually making work-life balance a reality, and not just a dream.
