Frequently Asked Questions
What does ReLawnch do?
ReLawnch paves the way for women legal professionals to reenter the workforce.
Across the world, dated policies and a gendered approach to child and family care have had a negative impact on the careers of women professionals. Many are compelled to get back to work — or leave it — shortly after giving birth. Viewed as the default caregivers of familial units, they often settle for lesser paying jobs to balance their caregiving responsibilities.
Additionally, employers are reluctant to hire women professionals who have taken a break, making it difficult for women to get back to work. This despite credible empirical evidence of women legal professionals returning from sabbaticals to lead successful careers.
Through ReLawnch, we help women legal professionals bridge career gaps, and help firms and enterprises create more inclusive workplaces.
