|Firm To Sponsor One-On-One Consulting Services For Working Parents
Century City, CA - February 3, 2015 - O’Melveny & Myers LLP is pleased to announce that it has teamed with “ParentWings” to offer its working parents—staff and attorneys around the globe—one-on-one consulting services with vetted experts on a wide range of parenting issues, including achieving developmental milestones, discipline, starting solids/nutrition, sleep training, and lactation/pumping, among others.
Amy Siegel, an Entertainment, Sports & Media partner in O’Melveny’s Century City office, worked closely with O’Melveny’s Talent Development team to spearhead this global effort. ParentWings founder, Sara Ross, is a child development and behavior specialist who has over ten years of experience working with children and parents. Ross commented, “I look forward to partnering with O’Melveny’s working parents to provide the support they need to feel confident and empowered in their parenting decisions.” Together with her comprehensive team of vetted parenting experts, Ross will provide private, confidential sessions and will prepare personalized action plans with specific recommendations for participating parents. The Firm will cover the cost of each participant’s initial session.
“As a working parent, I know how important it is to find trusted, reliable parenting resources without taking valuable time away from your family or career,” Siegel noted. “I’m proud to be with a Firm that continues to support and introduce innovative benefits for both attorney and staff parents. I think OMM and ParentWings are a perfect match.”
“O’Melveny understands that working parents essentially have two jobs—they are striving to perform at their best, both at home and at work,” said Rochelle Karr, O’Melveny’s Director of Attorney Professional Development and Alumni Relations. “We are always looking for ways we can provide expert support and connect our people with the best resources to help them achieve that.”
