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.

UPDATE: 8/11/20

While it was a difficult decision, the Denise Henning Connection’s program has decided to postpone the application process, for the upcoming Class of 2021, due to Covid-19 and the limiting of social contact and avoidance of large gatherings. Considering the remainder of our 2020 events have been cancelled and the unknown, for future events, we felt that postponing the application process, was in the best interest for the Class of 2021. We plan to resume that selection process in the Spring of 2021. Updates will be posted on the AWL website sometime in Jan or Feb, 2021.
