Last week, Barefoot on the Town attended the first meeting of the Denver MAMAs at the office of Kennedy Childs. MAMAs stands for Mother Attorneys Mentoring Group, and the Denver chapter was started earlier this year to empower and encourage attorney mothers. The founding MAMAs, as they call themselves, are a diverse group of ladies. Some are from small or large firms, while others work in-house or are taking a break from practice while they raise their families. The founding MAMAs are Julie Warren, Laura Martinez, Jennifer Madsen, Jenifer Ross-Amato, Angela Hahn, Amanda Upson, Kristen Carney, Christy Anderson, Susan O’Brien and Catherine Olson Brown.
MAMAs originated in Seattle in 2006, and has expanded to several cities across the country. The Denver group has 81 current members, and is looking to add more. There are no dues, and events rotate between monthly brown bag lunches held at Encana Oil & Gas (370 17th St., Suite 1700) and weekend events. The best thing about the MAMAs? Kids are welcome at all events.
In addition to serving as a place for attorney mothers to network, the group also encourages members to share experiences, problem solve and talk through the issues they face as both mothers and attorneys in a supportive environment.
