Sarah A. Good

Sarah Good will be speaking at the Professional Development Consortium's live webinar, "Diversity Sponsorship Law Firm Programs."

Details:
Sponsorship is critical to the retention and advancement to partnership of associates at law firms. We will discuss the differences between mentorship and sponsorship and why many women and diverse associates are over-mentored and under-sponsored. We also will discuss the structure and the lessons learned from the innovative 2019 Pilot Sponsorship Program created without outside assistance by Farella, Braun + Martel that involves a Sponsor-Protege relationship that is supported by a team that includes decision-makers at the highest level of the firm (from the Firm Chair, Advisory Board, Industry Group Leaders and Practice Area Leaders), business development coaching and client involvement. Please come prepared to explore the concept of sponsorship at law firms and learn about the Farella experience at a mid-sized firm (120 attorneys) and lessons learned for the future.
