Mother Attorneys Mentoring Association of Philadelphia
Welcome to Philly-MAMA! Our group was founded in 2009 in an effort to empower women and encourage them to succeed while celebrating their roles as attorneys and mothers. We are devoted to furthering the interests of mother attorneys in Philadelphia, in the surrounding areas, and throughout the nation. We are a sister organization of Mother Attorneys Mentoring Association of Seattle.
Philly-MAMA seeks to enhance the recognition of mother attorneys in the community; promote the advancement of mother attorneys within the profession; facilitate the achievement of work-life balance; provide a forum for informing members and the legal profession about issues of particular concern to mother attorneys; support mother attorneys contemplating alternative work schedules or extended leaves of absence; and, increase the interaction between mother attorneys of diverse backgrounds and practices.
Philly-MAMA meets once a month, with our children, which sets us apart from any other attorney organization in Philadelphia. These monthly events provide attorney mothers with a forum to network, socialize, and problem solve in a child-friendly environment.
Philly-MAMA also sponsors brown bag lunches every month. These meetings include panel discussions addressing topics of particular interest to mother attorneys.
