Amy Padgett Talks With Working Mother About Helping Women Succeed


Orrick partner Amy Padgett is featured in a Q&A with Working Mother on how Orrick supports women in building successful careers, including through our family-friendly policies and programs focused on mentoring, coaching and leadership development. Orrick was named to the publication’s 2021 Best Law Firms for Women – our 13th year on the list.

In talking about the importance of advancing women within our firm, Amy told Working Mother: “For me personally, it’s made it possible to connect with the firm and with a career in law. I feel like I belong here. We have all heard the phrase, ‘If you see it, you can achieve it.’ This has been particularly true for me and my career. Having women as role models, partners and mentors allowed me to believe that I too could achieve that level of success. It’s critically important for the future of our firm and our next generation of associates and partners to see women as partners and leaders within the firm.”
