"I wanted to let you both know that it took a few months, but I'll be moving to Denver, well on the way to living the exercise we did in the workshop back in the fall. I'm really looking forward to it, and definitely credit the workshop for pushing me ahead in my search. I thought the workshop was amazing, and though I struggled with my job search (I was really unmotivated from January to March), knowing other people were in the same boat was so helpful." -C.D.

"Thank you so much for facilitating such a great workshop. I feel so much more energized and focused, and though I now have much to think about it feels great to now have several frameworks within which to do that and different approaches to try. It was a pleasure meeting you both. Thanks again!" - C.B.

"I just wanted to say thank you again for the Career Workshop for Women Lawyers. I'm happy to inform you that I received a job offer and I accepted the position. Thanks so much for providing me with words of encouragement regarding my fears of trying something different!" - C.H.
