Good afternoon! This week we have an unprecedented two Kilgore emails, thanks to an influx of interesting opportunities and news items that have found their way to us throughout the week!
Following up on a news article we shared earlier this week, we have additional information on an exciting new law firm fellowship opportunity for returning women lawyers (available in cities across the country), as well as job opportunities from California to Philly, DC, and North Carolina. We also welcome two new alumnae staff members, honor one alumna with a portrait unveiling next week, and highlight a recent interview with current Penn President Amy Gutmann at Davos, in which she speaks a bit about women and leadership.
OnRamp Fellowship (4 major law firms, 15 cities across the U.S.)
As noted in the American Lawyer article in our last Kilgore newsletter, last week saw the launch of OnRamp Fellowship, a new initiative offering a re-entry platform for female lawyers (with a minimum of 3 years of experience, and who have taken at least a 2 year hiatus from the legal profession) that matches them with law firms for a 1 year, paid training fellowship.
See attached pdf for more details about the fellowship and application process.
