Andrea Doneff – Circuit Mediator, U.S. Court of Appeals, Eleventh Circuit

Panel members will address ways in which attorneys have successfully merged family with career. They will address how each person can identify their own personal and professional values, prioritize family or career at different times and in different ways, and return to work after time away. There is no right or wrong; there is no standard measure of success, whether as parent or lawyer. Ultimately, each person can embrace her own “normal” and professionally capitalize on the strengths and skills that come from having a vibrant personal life.
