Equity partners represent a select group of business developers and leaders within a law firm. In most large firms, while women make up nearly 50 percent of young associates, the percentage of female equity partners is less than half that number. Traditional firm “mentoring” programs do not appear to be changing this state of affairs.
Nelson Mullins has developed a program that specifically aims to expand the business-development and leadership capabilities of its women attorneys. The program is based on the realization that, with focused, intentional coaching and sponsorship, selfconfidence, comfort zones, and ways of exercising leadership can be developed to equity-partner levels.
