OnRamp Fellowship, Legal Talent Lab (2014)

Key Team Members: Caren Ulrich Stacey of legal Talent Lab in collaboration with several partners and directors at Sidley, Hogan Lovells, Baker Botts and Cooley
The OnRamp Fellowship, created in December 2013, aims to address this problem by replenishing the pipeline of mid to senior level women lawyers in law firms. As the first “Returnship” ever launched in the legal profession, the Fellowship is a re-entry platform that matches experienced women lawyers returning to the profession with law firms for a one-year, paid position. This unique experiential learning program gives returning women an opportunity to demonstrate their value in the marketplace while also broadening their experience, skills, and legal contacts. In turn, the legal profession and law firms benefit by engaging with a previously untapped pool of high-performers and by increasing gender diversity in the profession.
