Hello all, how can we approach the gender pay gap at our respective employers? I know I’ve mentioned it before but it seems to make Culture & Talent, as well as Legal cringe.

Overworked mom of two young kids and I’ve come to the realization that I have very few friends who live nearby. I’m the only one of my close circle who didn’t head to suburbs after kids and WFH has made me aware of how reliant I was on work friends for a social outlet. I’ve still got great friends I can call for anything but, really missing having girlfriends I can just meet up without planning a month in advance. Strategies for making new friends in middle age and with very little spare time?

I am a second year associate who just switched from our litigation group to our corporate group, and I’m struggling. I enjoy the work so much more, but “corporate” is so broad and I’m one of the only junior attorneys doing it, so I’m working basically on anything a partner needs help with. All of the partners with the exception of one are older men. I feel like the learning curve is so steep and I’m just making so many mistakes, I’m worried they’ll stop wanting to work with me! Any advice?

Hi all, Has anyone here put in for mental health leave? I am seriously thinking of talking about it with my therapist on Thursday. I'm having heartburn, insomnia, multiple migraines a week (almost threw up today during my planning period 🤢).
