What is the OnRamp Fellowship?
The OnRamp Fellowship, powered by Diversity Lab, is a re-entry platform that matches experienced lawyers returning to the workforce after a career hiatus with law firms and legal departments in the U.S. for year-long paid positions.
Why is OnRamp Important to Returners?
This unique program gives returning lawyers an opportunity to demonstrate their value in the marketplace while also broadening their experience, skills, and contacts. Through the coaching and cohorts, it also offers a support infrastructure and an opportunity to connect with other returners.
How Does OnRamp Benefit Organizations?
Law firms and legal departments that participate in the OnRamp Fellowship gain access to an untapped group of diverse high performing lawyers who want to return to and advance in the legal profession. More than 35 legal organizations have hired Fellows through OnRamp since its inception in 2014.
What is the Goal of OnRamp?
The goal of the Fellowship is to replenish the talent pipeline in law firms and legal departments with experienced diverse lawyers who have the potential and the desire to advance into leadership roles. Several former Fellows have already made partner at top law firms or taken on senior roles in legal departments.
