Why did you join the WBA? I joined the WBA to meet other young women lawyers outside my firm. I joined the WBADC during the height of the pandemic, when so many of us were struggling to connect with each other and advance in our careers when the divide between work and home life was not only blurred but basically obliterated. I hoped that joining would help me to overcome the inherent social and professional struggles that came along with [...]
