About Top Lawyer Coaches
The coaches featured on Top Lawyer Coaches are actively coaching women and minority lawyers through the OnRamp Fellowship, the largest global re-entry program for women lawyers returning to the profession. By highlighting them on this website, we want the world to know about their expertise so they can provide career advancement coaching to others who will benefit. We also want to sincerely thank these amazing coaches for their hard work and efforts to support and advance diversity in the law.
Top Lawyer Coaches is powered by Diversity Lab. The Lab tests and implements innovative ways to close the gender gap and boost diversity in law firms and legal departments through data, design thinking, technology, and behavioral science. Due to the positive measurable outcomes, the Mansfield Rule and the OnRamp Fellowship are some of the Lab’s most well known initiatives.
The OnRamp Fellowship is a re-entry platform that matches experienced women lawyers returning to the workforce after a career break with law firms and legal departments for six to twelve month paid positions. This unique experiential learning program gives returners an opportunity to demonstrate their value in the marketplace while also broadening their experiences, skills, and contacts.
The Fellowship started with four law firms — Sidley, Baker Botts, Hogan Lovells, and Cooley — and has now grown to include more than 35 law firms and Fortune 500 legal departments such as Amazon, 3M, Salesforce, and Microsoft. As of Summer 2020, more than 85 diverse returners have been placed at prestigious legal organizations. To learn more, visit our website or browse open positions.
