AWLF Denise Henning Connections

We encourage women at all stages of their careers. We believe support for new attorneys is crucial to their retention and success; we believe experienced attorneys can be affirmed and fulfilled by giving back.


Denise Henning Connections, our mentorship program, pairs women who have practiced for less than five years with a knowledgeable mentor. The program lasts five years, and it combines individual monthly meetings with group gatherings of all mentor-mentee matches. Participants must be active members of AWL.  Over 100 women have participated in the program since inception - click HERE to view a listing of Mentors and Mentees. 


Our goals:

  • Develop meaningful relationships among women in the law;
  • Bridge the gap between women in leadership positions and new women attorneys;
  • Enhance and extend each woman’s professional network;
  • Foster the success of program members; and
  • Cultivate leaders for our community, bar associations and profession.


Applications are now being taken for the class of 2020 Mentees with a deadline of September 13, 2019. Click here to view the application.
