Challenges abound for lawyers looking for mentorship in the post-pandemic, remote-work world, especially at companies where such may become a permanent way of operating.

Leaders may find themselves stumped when it comes to nurturing new talent in an age where more and more communications are done via video conferencing than in walk-in meetings. Some have even said remote work poses an issue for diversity and inclusion efforts because it limits mentorship opportunities for all attorneys, including those from underrepresented groups.
