“It’s hard to imagine a life stage that’s more misunderstood than midlife. Not only is there no roadmap: you should consider yourself lucky if you actually manage to spot a road sign announcing that you’ve arrived.” – Ann Douglas
Women leave law for many reasons in the early stages of their careers. What we have not yet explored is our reasons for leaving law in midlife. Many women in midlife continue to balance family responsibilities with adult children and aging parents, all while navigating personal and physical midlife changes and challenges. Law firms have much to gain if they meet their midlife women lawyers, with decades of experience and secure professional relationships, where they are. There is a real opportunity to co-create a work environment that encourages retention, which we will explore in beginning this important dialogue.

For law firms: what can you offer your midlife women lawyers to inspire their leadership, creativity, and mentorship?
