AWL is excited to continue its Mentoring Circles Program in 2018. The Mentoring Circles Program continues to be available to women lawyers in Calgary of all years of call and practice status. Participants may be practicing, non-practicing, or retired members of the Law Society of Alberta. AWL believes mentoring relationships are an important way for women lawyers to provide and receive support to and from other women in the profession to enhance their own careers and personal and professional lives. Lawyers who wish to establish a 1 to 1 mentoring relationship with someone they connect with at the Mentoring Circles Program are encouraged to do so.


Participants may use the tickets options above to register and pay upfront for all six sessions at a lesser price, or register and pay for each session individually as the events are released.
