Coordinator of the Forum of Women Lawyers of Ukrainian Bar Association
The Forum of Women of UBA increases its activities – the pressure group of the Association established the new program called “The School of Leadership”. Under this program, women leaders in any field of law, including partners of law firms, prominent scholars and educators, state employees and even rainmakers of jurisprudence are offered to answer a number of questions. These interviews will be published online on the Forum’s page to help many women build their careers. All interested are invited to participate in the project with the conditions of participation provided by the link.
The first interview on the Forum’s page is devoted to a very relevant matter – how to keep a place in the legal market and not lose the qualification for women lawyers who leave with the purpose of childcare. The answer to this question gives Olena Pelypenko, the author of over 20 publications; graduate of the Economic Law Faculty of The Yaroslav Mudryi National Law University, who is on the child rearing leave (was previously employed as a senior lawyer of a leading law firm).
