Women’s Initiatives

Reinhart is committed to a firm culture that recruits, develops, promotes and retains women attorneys and professionals. We understand that women face unique challenges in pursuing both higher education and professional careers. We are dedicated to maintaining an environment where women can flourish and become leaders within our firm and throughout the communities we serve, and we strive to provide opportunities, programs and resources to support and empower them in their journey.

Women Attorney’s Forum

The Reinhart Women Attorney’s Forum (RWAF) provides opportunities for women to network, mentor and share business skills and strategies. RWAF mentoring groups of senior, mid-level and junior attorneys meet regularly to discuss practice development, reputation building within the legal community and other concerns. The RWAF also sponsors numerous conferences and events for women in the communities we serve.

Engagement and Support

We partner with professional and community-based organizations dedicated to the advancement of women throughout their careers and actively support those journeys with resources and internal programs that celebrate women’s achievements.   

We actively engage with and support Milwaukee Women, Inc. in its mission to accelerate and achieve balanced representation of women on boards of directors to maximize the performance of Wisconsin businesses.

Reinhart attorneys are longtime members and leaders in TEMPO, an organization that helps accelerate, advance and elevate women leaders in the community. We frequently sponsor TEMPO events, including the Milwaukee Mentor Awards Luncheon and the Milwaukee Leadership Summit.

We provide pro bono services to WWBIC clients and assist their efforts to educate, support and finance small business enterprises. Our attorneys deliver ongoing training to entrepreneurs in the program.

Reinhart participates in MadWIP and supports its efforts to foster networking and the exchange of experience among Madison-area women working in the field of intellectual property.

In celebration of Women’s History Month, we’ve asked female shareholders to share their career stories, hosted listening sessions about gender bias in the workplace, invited speakers to offer strategies and insights and partnered with Girl Scouts of Southeast Wisconsin to promote careers in law.

This group’s goal is to provide a safe and welcoming space for working mothers to meet and exchange information. The group provides a platform for employees to connect in meaningful ways and obtain information and resources relevant to raising a family while balancing a rewarding career. A mentorship program for new parents is currently under development to address the challenges of navigating maternity and parental leaves, work ramp-down and ramp-up periods while planning for leave and returning from leave.
