I was induced at 37 weeks - good luck! You got this!

Thank you! I’m 37 weeks as well and was induced with my first at 37 too (after my water broke)! Just nervous as my first experience (12 years ago) was really not pleasant and honestly traumatic. Hoping everything goes much more smoothly this time around since I’m expecting it!

Good luck - you’ve got this!!!

All the DE&I talk... I’m hoping for some perspective.

Chatted with a trusted SM colleague (white, male). He said he doesn’t see a path forward for him because our leadership ranks are all male and mostly white. I told him it’s interesting because that’s also how I feel because I don’t see myself represented there (minority, woman).

He proceeded to tell me not to get him wrong, but that I will get there because we need women in leadership. He told me he knows I’ll get there because I’m smart...

Question for boutique litigation firm fish: Is there a standard timeline for partner at boutique firms? E.g. at my AmLaw 200 firm you are up for partner year 8-10, then either counsel or out - is it similar in boutique lit?

For context, I'm an associate in Commercial Lit. I'm not chasing partner but I'd like a few more years getting substantive work in complex lit in a larger city. I'm wondering if I'll be "aged out" as a lateral since I'm not in the 3-5 year sweet spot.

Thanks I'm advance 🙏
