The Women Lawyers of Franklin County will again offer the "Dining Circle" Initiative for 2017-2018. The Dining Circle is a mentoring and networking program that provides members with an opportunity to meet other women attorneys in the community and to share experiences in a comfortable environment. Each Dining Circle Group will consist of approximately 7 to 10 women with varying professional backgrounds who will meet once a month during the program year. All interested attorneys are welcome to participate-from experienced attorneys to new associates, government lawyers to in-house counsel, firm-based attorneys to solo practitioners, and judges as well!
You must be a member to participate, so please make sure your membership is current when you submit your application.
Several group options are available to meet members' wide-range of scheduling needs: Early Breakfast (before 8:30 a.m.), Late Breakfast (after 8:30 a.m.), Lunch, Happy Hour, and Playgroup. For the Playgroup option, monthly activities are scheduled during traditional work-time hours and include the group members' children (such as a picnic at a playground or a trip to the zoo). Although the Dining Circle Playgroup is designed for attorneys who either practice part-time or currently do not work outside of the home, any attorney is encouraged to sign up for the group.
There will be a "Kick-Off" lunch for participants to meet one another at 12:30 pm, October 26, at the Columbus Bar Association. Lunch will be provided.
